The Director’s Movie: The Sunday Whirl “Wordle”

Who of us hasn’t watched a director’s movie and reacted?

The Sunday Whirl blog invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 word.


The Director’s Movie

The timing was impeccable.
It took away my breath.
The vision bleak, but what technique –
to watch that blazing death!

Some say that it was nebulous.
I thought the scene an opaque pact.
A fiery statement upon a marble slab –
That only a soul of stone would not react.

The torch lit.
A hover of truth now seeking its lover.
Though touched as it were, and crushed –
Even Death could not take it over.

And as I imagined the Director’s final cry of “Cut!”,
Though critics panned it, the fading scene lanced my gut.

  1. Yes, it is all about impact and emotions. How many old movies have we all seen again years later and wondered why we raved about them the time!

  2. Isn’t that the way it always is Randy? I always seem to feel or see something others don’t. 🙂 Nicely done.

Have some fun...
