An activity forum for sharing quotes, words & phrases, and lines of poetry.
~Welcome to Words, Wonderful Words. The purpose of this activity forum is to share our favorite famous quotes, phrases, and lines of poetry. There are terrific combinations of words weaved by WdC writers. I listed some in my first post. Please shoot me an email with any ideas you would like to see used here.~ tracker


I often see words arranged in unique and clever ways. Creativity abounds at WdC. Some make me smile, some make me frown, but all give me pause to wonder why I did not think of them myself:

"Another page of God's coloring book is displayed before me today."

"Her locality has become more restrictive and her mother’s values and life-choices when she was the same age are a constant dirge in her ear."

What words or phrases have you seen that piqued your interest? Have you written some? What are they?

Sleep’s Drama

Sleep pulls me into the story and
gives me a script, commanding me
to go there, to say this and then that,
expecting that I be unsurprised when
the guy checking my groceries
becomes a sheep and begins to eat
the head of lettuce I so carefully chose
from the produce department.

I’m transported from one setting to
another, both familiar and unknown.
Scene by scene, I follow, without
question, the nebulous plot hatched
in Sleep’s labyrinth- like, playwright mind.
The theatrics are all so logically illogical.

The play goes on and on as I portray
all the characters. I am the entire
cast, you see - Aunt Dora, the cat,
a grouchy baby, some crazy dude
wearing a cowboy hat, that sheep.

At last, Sleep itself tires and pushes
me aside, taking a deep bow for its
executorship. As the curtains close, I
yawn and stretch, moving groggily into
another bizarre dimension: Reality.

innerlights muse is back. in her 7/9 comment: "I suffer from a mental illness like millions of others do... I came across this phrase...love all of me not just part of me."

Can you or someone you know relate? Not being loved for the mental illness part of your brain?
