Three Word Wednesday: Reckless, Heartache, Jangle

Saturday night I had the unfortunate circumstance of witnessing a car and a motorcycle collide with fatal results. It’s been smashing in my head all week, and Wednesday’s words provided an outlet for expression.

Reckless rider
Yellow bike

Jangled nerves
Red brake lights

Glossy blood halo
Colorless in dusky night

Pronounced at the scene
Black task ahead

Heartache’s strongest color
Purple for the dead

    Clean, clear and simple. The colour transition works well.

    My sympathies for having been witness to such a scene, and I hope, like the others, that this has helped put the worst of the memories away.

    Sorry you witnessed that drama. Events like that stay in the mind for a long time. You’ve done an excellent job of relating it with fine words and flow.

    I’m so sorry. It’s why we all need poetry, isn’t it.

      Yes, Ren, that was a few years ago now. I’ve not worked with this blog in a long time, but I admit, your bravery has inspired me, and I think I may gear it back up soon. Thank you so much!
