A Gaggle of Emotions

For dVerse and our host, Bjorn. Our creative challenge is to β€œverb nouns.” Cheers to verbing nouns. Hope I’ve verbed my nouns properly. 😊


An aerie of eagles flew by on a wing and a prayer…
I heard them muttering about the ascension of larks.
Even the sky seems lonely and somber, remembering better days,
when the sun confidenced with a brazen grin.
Memories are clouding in the sky
trying to shape the recall of dreams.
Even the rivering seems too stoic, as it streams past.
Ghostly haunts drift by now and again, stopping to say hello.
My mind plays tricks on me, as the emotions float through,
wondering if things will never be the same again.
I think a bevy of swans,
A book of wagers,
A caste of flower pots,
An array of hedgehogs,
Or even an argument of wizards,
Would lift my spirits right about now.

  1. Beautiful poetic words MW, and love your images too… I ponder often, on these changes and will anything ever be the same again… I doubt it.. And that is not to say I believe it will get worse… It may well do for a time…
    But Change is constant… and we all of us need to change our thoughts and our attitudes and behaviours and sometimes something has to come along to shake us out of our comfort zones to make those changes…
    Some will rise and others will fall…. But all will not be lost.. Because we are within this duellist reality of good and bad, Light and Dark, Negative and Positive…
    Now it is time for all of us to find Balance.. within the gaggle of our emotions… ❀ ❀ ❀

    • I have the same thoughts about the situation we find ourselves in.

      The news tends to be disheartening and discouraging, but when I’m with a tribe of kindred spirits I feel the essence of love and a resurgence of hope.

      I’m so grateful for the wisdom and embrace of friends like you and the communities we create. The WP community is a heartwarming, hopeful and inspiring place. Balance is tricky in such a drastically lop-sided world, but together we will find our equilibrium. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

  2. This is wonderful. Hard to pick my favourite part but this one touched me most
    Memories are clouding in the sky
    trying to shape the recall of dreams.
    Beautiful.

  3. Excellent telling of current times and emotions, MW! All the lines are terrific, but I especially loved these:

    “Even the sky seems lonely and somber, remembering better days,
    when the sun confidenced with a brazen grin.”

    Stay well, my friend.

  4. love your gentle questioning of our current crisis and nobody has the answers …

    Great use of verbing nouns … particularly like
    “I think a bevy of swans,
    A book of wagers,
    A caste of flower pots,
    An array of hedgehogs,
    Or even an argument of wizards,”
