the 12 given Wordle words:
dangle courtyard folly please cloth place
attractancy (n)) the capacity to attract)
perturbation (the state of being worried)
bolt proceed treasure branch place

to dangle in the courtyard in folly
pleased to be clothed with colors
a place not open to an attractancy
but still subject to mental horrors

labored with inspired perturbation
in a trance seemingly bolted together
to proceed hermits-like in meditation
clouded in unusual stance to treasure

peace of mind secured like a yoga
self-imposed branch of punishment
city life existence pushing it too far
but to each his own not to lament

  1. Interesting use of cloud/clouded. It feels like disguise or secretiveness when it comes to self punishment. And yet "secured like a yoga" implies otherwise. Resignation can be more gentle than recrimination . . . .

  2. An interesting use of challenging words, Hank. Wow!

  3. Wow! This is a fresh new way of looking at the withdrawal process


  4. A trance that would sure be hard to hold

  5. Great use of the words, and clever use of clouded. That photo is mesmerizing. Great writing Hank!

  6. clouded in unusual stance to treasure

    Sounds enticing Hank!

  7. A great job with such complicated words

  8. "pleased to be clothed with colors" Now this is real fun :) 'inspired perturbation' is another interesting combo. Great word juggling Hank, I must say. Wow!

  9. "self-imposed branch of punishment" must become the name of an exercise class.

    Thank you for this. All the images you brought into being made me giggle.

  10. Nice how you can use all those words to create this poem. I think that must be some kind of yoga exercise in itself.

  11. Great verse using the given words Hank.
    Wish I could do yoga but find it
    Have a good weekend.
