Wordle #173 – Divine Interference


1. supplicant [A supplicant is a person who prays to God or respectfully asks an important person to help them or to give them something that they want very much.]
2. seraphic [characteristic of or resembling a seraph or seraphim|seraphim:an angelic being, regarded in traditional Christian angelology as belonging to the highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy, associated with light, ardor, and purity. ]
3. disastrous
4. polish
5. petticoats [a woman’s light, loose undergarment hanging from the shoulders or the waist, worn under a skirt or dress]
6. neutral
7. squander
8. ecru [the light beige color of unbleached linen]
9. alarm
10. dramatic art
11. bend
12. tickle

My role as supplicant squandered. My petition disastrous. The seraphic response hardly neutral. Leaving me with a tickle in the throat and a shot to the gut to polish me of. I appear bending like dramatic art.

All for the love for ecru petticoats.

  1. Well you’ve done a great job with the wordle even if you ended up somewhere else than intended! I have to say, at the end, I was laughing, because I could just hear someone saying this – it is a poetic monologue – that has a nifty and slightly unexpected twist – shot to the gut – and then, for me, what really did me in – was the admission of ecru petticoats –

    sometimes, the power of specific words just blows something out of the water – I mean, this has an angelic film noir quality – it would hardly have the same impact or meaning, if the words had been ruby red corset or teddy or lacy lingerie …..

    Brilliant Mark and lots of fun – thanks for playing the wordle this week 😀

      1. LOL – indeed – incubus, succubus, …. pyre is definitely on par with that 😉

        great job – and if you are serious about composing a wordle and want me to “guest post it for you” – you’re more than welcome to – you can send it to me in an email:

        if not, that’s fine too 🙂
