one word passim: triangle

Was not interested in today's offering, so I went back for an earlier prompt.

grant this:

geometric bloom

occasioning birth

triangular frisson



postulants of mercy

withering down

the long way's


castaways on storms


in sanctums

spiced with



Carry the rest

that wings protect,


hearts, limbs,

fingertip savings

from the noddings

of demure souls.

This is a beautiful prayer: thank you, Paschal, for those postulants of mercy / withering down / the long way's visitation, those castaways on storms / brewed in sanctums spiced with en-twined/ dreams. A perfect closing benediction; just the right words.

Hmmm. More subdued than usual. Almost an autumn song, though it does fit the photo. Of which, if I'm not mistaken, that's a river in India near the ruins of Hampi, and my wife and I traveled in one of those round craft.

A definite triangulation of here and there and everywhere. I like the "noddings of demure souls" (not sure whose???). and the words "brewed in sanctums spiced with en-twined dreams" speaks volumes.

great work!!

a prayer/petition? Sinners asking for forgiveness, "castaways on storms brewed in sanctums" (love that line) then spiced with en-twined (why the hyphen?) - maybe not completely ready to let go of the particular sin.
"Carry the rest that wings protect" - oh those are my sparklies. They do lift us, physically and spiritually, even when we are clinging by the tips of our fingers and heads are nodding knowingly.

Good to hear from you, Anno. Glad the prayer was traveling up your way.

Richard: This one came out slowly, much slower than usual: something working its way to the surface. Happened upon these coracles while image surfing: indeed from Hampi.

Teresa: Not sure either. All of us?

Dee: Glad there were fireflies in this for you. Hyphenated en-twine, in hopes of signaling the accent on the first syllable.

There is such a lovely rhythm to this,
like water flowing down a river.

Tammie: You know rivers so well, so I take this as a double compliment. Good to hear from you.
