society’s lull before the storm

its languished attempts

table tranquility

the world yawns as

the able bodied

forget their game

confessions flee

the sunken ship

before the wreck

let the truth be known

the storm is destined to pass

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #202

Let’s play around with words a little today. Yeah, we do it everyday, but let this word play be a word game.


One can extract forget, table or able from this word.

I give you three more

  1. Languish
  2. Shipwreck
  3. Customer

You can even change the order of alphabets  (like ‘peck’ from shipwreck, or ‘route’ from customer).
