Thirst

for knowledge, yearn for enlightenment
quench the spirit and soul
slake the dry parched throat
then cram words into the brain

quite the


undertaking

  8. "Slake the dry parched throat" - that's strong wording, awesome. Now to look up "slake."

    Hope you've been having a nice weekend, Joanne.

  12. Love the double meanings. Quenching the thirst (no matter what kind) is quite satisfying.
