Consequences of Ignorance

Written for:  Sunday Whirl, Wordle #485

Words:  sorry, familiar, earthy, train, skip, showstopper,
        scene, mass, plan, slip, sticky, spice

They were sorry, son,
that they had no plan.  
Slipped up when it came
to earth's mass.  A familiar,
joyous scene it was–offerings
of florals, spices, sweet
scents, and sticky honey
when there were bees.  They
skipped over the training
for how to keep us healthy
and safe.  That is what stopped
our show.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
