Witchcraft - 3 Word Wednesday

Thom writes: 3WW CCLXV - Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words. Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday. Here's the link to the site: 3WW CCLXV

This week's words: Fragrant; Jostle; Remnant.


Fragrant like jasmine
near my nestlings, in my dream
where you jostle tunes
free from the remnant
songs of my deliverance
I stumble in my rise
to final judgement
and watch black shadows gather
in the old designs.

Elizabeth Searle Lamb says:
"Pausing is the doorway to awakening.

"We pause not only with our body but also with our mind. And sometimes we can be attentive and sometimes we cannot, but that is all right, for the next moment always brings us the fresh possibility to pause and be present again. There are no steps to follow, there is no enlightenment to work toward - there is only the simplicity of relaxing into this very moment that is complete in itself. This naked moment is the only guide that we need to relax our mind. We need to trust this: in the midst of our daily life activities, the possibility to slow down, to stop, and then to appreciate naturally unfolds. For a fleeting moment we pause and note the sunlight on the sheets as we make the bed, note the warm sun on our cup as we sip tea, or note the fading light on the curtain as we enter the room. And we let out a breath or sigh. Pausing."

I say:
"To survive the craft, one must find the way to pause."


  1. Your poem gave the sense of working out pleasing it is when the sun hits the bed..not just a pause..but a sense of those patterns making sense..for me i read like least..Jae

  2. These are BIG thoughts, with a belting first line, and some good advice to boot!


    nishati nteremsa - this word verification is very difficult to read

  3. A thoughtful poem. I particularly like the last lines
    "and watch black shadows gather
    in the old designs."
    Good advice on "pausing" as well. We should all take note in those quiet moments.

  4. Old designs, habits and patterns challenging to change... an interesting, thought provoking piece.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
