From out of the waters, onto land….
Each week The Sunday Whirl invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “Wordle’s” 12 words. This week it is:
A Deferential Specter of Beginning Life with a Laugh
Life began in a bridge,
a grain of a blade, a wisp,
of billowy breath, so thin,
that it peeled off an archaic fin.
Then shouldered red clay, and a gasp!
As new lungs filtered air in.
In a spin, barged on land with new feet,
locked straight, circumspected, reflected:
that Homo Erected seemed sweet!
