4. Bus Stop✔️
6. Devoir- duty: business: something one must do✔️
8. Lacuna- an unfilled space: gap✔️
My devoir, my duty is clear
Every plush toy be squeaky clean
No grey specks that would put you in a huff
Dirt makes you dizzy, and then you cluck and complain
The tousled locks are a disgrace, brittle looks a big no-no
I am not to leave any lacuna in the arrangements before I come
To pick you up from the bus stop with a freshly made ice cream cone
Taking all care that it should not turn into a slurry before you have a chance to sample it!

In the golden light of the dawn
The gentle rhythm of the lapping waves
Bring imminent peace to my mind
I lick my lips and call on my inner strength
To complete my run on the beach this morning
I come here at the crack of the dawn
To do my morning run every single day
Till I am tired to the bone and ready
For the mince pie waiting for me
I return back admiring the rose branches
Peaking through the trellis along the way
2. Strepitous- adjective boisterous, noisy✔️
3. Platitude- noun a flat, dull, or trite remark, especially one uttered as if it were fresh or profound.✔️
The musical evening came to a strepitous end. These types of concerts were his forte. He was now familiar with the artists and had learned to roll with their ever changing demands. He would hustle to meet the requirements of the artists. But later that day, while picking up his laptop, he noticed the cursor blinking on the screen. He clicked on it and a green tufted image appeared. It was a warning sign that someone had tried to open his personal files. He just couldn’t suppress his angry thoughts and decided to pack up and quit. He threw his clothes and paperbacks in a plastic bag and started out of the door where he met the manager, who tried to calm him down with empty platitudes. But he had had enough!

Thick, true, salty, brew, milk, millennials, champ, like, marching, rights, card, luscious
Freshly brewed coffee was given a luscious flavor boost by adding thick milk. Jenny knew that true coffee drinkers shunned milk but being a millennial she preferred to make her own choices. She chose a salty treat to go with her coffee and joined the rest of her friends who were marching like the champs they were after finishing the 10K marathon. She was passed the placard which everyone was carrying, advocating equal rights for all genders.
6. Ghost Word- a word that has come into existence by error rather than by normal linguistic transmission, as through the mistaken reading of a manuscript, a scribal error, or a misprint.✔️
8. Requiescat- a wish or prayer for the repose of the dead.✔️
He clasped both hands together in a silent requiescat for all the departed souls. It was the first duty he was performing as the new pastor, but he wasn’t feeling self- conscious at all.
“You can not do this” a man sitting in the congregation stood up. The pastor gave him an apologetic look and said gently,” I am just praying for them. If you want someone else to do it please go ahead”
The man was subdued by the gentleness of the pastor and flushed red with embarrassment and felt like an insect that crawls.
Sitting back on the hard wooden bench, the pastor tucked his hands into his lap and continued in the same gentle tone,” tolerance is not a ghost word, it should be practiced more in our lives.

Crisis, probe, card, lies, disgust, hearing, sully, resign, up, fraught, silence, cover
The crisis could have been averted if lies and cover-up weren’t at the root of it. The committee formed to probe into the matter was disgusted by the racist card played by the main culprit. He had the gall to sully the sacred document of the constitution. When the facts came out at the hearings of the judicial committee, the demands for his resignation were heard everywhere. The situation was fraught with tension till the silence was broken by those in charge of the highest courts of the country. The upshot was his impeachment!
8. Bon Vivant (n))a person who lives luxuriously and enjoys good food and drink)✔️
Being a bon vivant, he had to have the minutiae of what were the planned menus for each day of the festival. His daily podcast was also centered around the food served in his resort. He wanted to capitalize on the fact that his restaurant and resort were featured in the top 500 of the world. It was a wonderful sensation to be talked about everywhere and be the envy of hoteliers all over.
But today he had to focus and not go off at a tangent. One incorrect step would be enough to flip the critics against him. No spongy salads or lumpy sauces to be on the table tonight and it would mean a negative review from all the renowned culinary critics dining today at his table. No excess was too much today!

The light fell on his hands which were in shackles
His crime was to reach above his station
He had asked for the unattainable
Wanted to join with those on the other side
No matter that his conduct was spotless
And the struggle he had done to attain his position
Had cost him years of hard work and sweat
But now as he tasted the salt of his own tears
And cursed his straying heart which had
Landed him in this impossible situation
The probe into the allegations was rigged
A pretty dime had been spend to pave the way
For his disgrace and incarceration
As the clock chimed the hour
He thought of ways to undo the vengeance
Designed to destroy his future
Laugh now but you will rue it later
This sham of a facade you wear
It is just a shallow mask to hide
Your crafty and devious thinking
It may bring you success temporarily
But this spiral of deceit you’ve drafted
Won’t damage the dense shell that surrounds
My stronghold over the truth and facts
So no use to offer a sop of an excuse
To hide your plans, as you are sending
Mixed signals and the lies are visible
For all to see and perceive

Sunday Whirl- Wordle #426
Mither (make a fuss, moan)
While I wither
And it slithers away
There is no scope
To tie it with a rope
But I still have hope
That that coward will cower
In the castle tower
Behind the red flower
Or I will scour for it
Far and wide
