10 of 12 given words:
fry gift manner star silence sand 
mar charge stormy wired

having other fishes to fry
a gift to reward one's efforts
in a manner not on the sly
to the Bahamas southwards

star offering not known to silence
golden sands on a scenic beach
crowded vacation destination
to mar the natural-like peace

charged up with urban life's challenge
an ideal choice to let off steam
away from stormy unsolicited tensions
to bask in peaceful heavenly dreams

could one be faulted on an indiscretion
that could go a long way to appease
a mind all wired up with office problems
be kind to oneself to be well at ease

  1. Clever use of the words...

  2. We really DO need to be kind to ourselves...good point, Hank.

  3. There is a lot of wisdom in that closing line, Hank.

  4. Have to let things go and just relax many a time indeed

  5. Love how you ended this and I think I too need the beach somewhere warm as we are getting another winter storm.

  6. We need that peaceful getaway now and then.

  7. Nice to see you on Pegman! Loved the ending.

  8. Great use of the prompt and the words.

  9. We really do have to pause and give ourselves a bit of ease, occasionally, beset as we are with urban life's challenges. Another wise reminder, Hank.

  10. Can't argue with that! Very neatly done and, as others have said, a real good close too...

  11. I'm fascinated by the indiscretion. What could it be, I wonder?
