Whose Will Is Done?

The Sunday Whirl "Wordle" #105

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

they call us infidels
those who shock us with their bloodshed
from bombs they use against 
our land of freedoms and equality

minds are fragile
we know not how they harden
they sought shelter in our country
and now we struggle to understand
why they turned against us

in our resilience and ability to thrive
to right the wrong
in the promise to "bring to justice"
did we act in haste?
cheers for the dead and near dead

i rejoice that boston once again feels safe
that the bloodshed has been spent for now
that mourning and healing can ensue

but how many more minds are
being molded in this moment?
i wonder how many more
who would harm us without thought
or conscience
and at whose will?


  1. Good use of the words. Think they had a similar affect on many of the writers. However, I really like your thoughtful probing into consequences and affects of this latest experience. Emotions remain high and there is a need for a calm and thoughtful reply.


  2. Excellent!! and you have spoken out clearly expressing all doubts and fears!! But I still maintain that ignorant can be taught, the crazy medicated but what about stupidity??

  3. You've done a beautiful job with the wordle words. Very creative.

  4. Thanks to all for taking the time to write your lovely and thoughtful comments!
