Late with my homogenia

I'm sharing the art and Wikipedia definition provided by MZ at Words Count with Mama Zen for her recent homophone challenge.
Fewer than 75 words, says Mama Zen...well, I can manage that. Formerly verbose, and happy with it, I have not so much improved as I have actually managed to shrink. Not what I wanted, really, but it means that if I return to verbosity, I will have therefore grown, if only in my own eyes.

homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning, and may differ in spelling. The words may be spelled the same, such as rose (flower) and rose (past tense of "rise"), or differently, such as carat, caret, and carrot, or to, two, and too.                                                                                                                                                  –Wikipedia

we need to hire the right wright
to write the words for the rite
of marriage
and then—
the two greys who graze
in the field nearby
will wear white bridles 
as they pull the bridal coach

Oh Kay, you never fail to impress me with your command of the English language. It's so good to see you on Blogger again. Ambrose sent a post to Lindy and Bozo for tomorrow. Keep well and pat Lindy for us all. Jo

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Jo — You are a darling. And thanks for mentioning Bozo. Lindy must find a photo of herself for him (and for Ambrose).
Love, K

Clever YOU! I've missed you Kay, I am also not around much these days and won't be for a couple of months! Happy Holidays.

I loved reading this, Kay. Your "greys" and "graze" took me by surprise. Fun!!
My last pickup I sold in the early 2000's to our garbage truck driver for $1500, a steal, but he needed a car. We, a few years before, had done that for a young couple with two little children, they also needed a car. Neither cars were very new but were dependable and well kept.
When a man, goes for most men I believe, sells his truck he loses a part of his manhood. :)

Oh this is just wonderful Kay! So much imagery evoked in so few words.

...and I just came here from Bozo's place; it is lovely to have him back in the Blogosphere too! A wag to Lindy and hugs to you, YAM xx
