Wordle 65: The Dragon and the Unicorn
Here is my response to The Sunday Whirl’s Wordle 65 using these words: flicks, swells, spray, grittle, gravity, plant, trigger, relishes, chain, crack, humility, refrain, and claim
The Dragon and the Unicorn
The unicorn flicks
her tail with a crack as she stands
trapped and chained
at the cliff's edge.
How could she have been caught?
An iridescent purple dragon
soaring overhead swoops down
onto the cliff as the force of
gravity sprays grittle into
the surrounding plants.
With the greatest humility
the unicorn asks for help.
The dragon's anger now triggered
rises like swells in the ocean as
she ponders the cruelty of
capturing a magnificent unicorn.
Humans claim all sorts of reasons
for their abuse of other creatures
chanting the old refrain of
dominion over all, but the dragon
relishes the chance to foil their plans.
She quickly breaks the chains
binding the unicorn, and together
they forsake that barren cliff.
