A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

Turn of phrase in language: origin and differences -

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. – Harriet Beecher Stowe

Figurative twirl,

Beyond literal meaning,

Pardon the unfurl!

Locution swerves teeming,

Cast feeler’s clutch before pearl!

Have you ever thought how one phrase, one sentence, one troll can ruin someone’s entire life? Why do we interfere in their private lives? Think of others as our properties? And say whatever bitterness is in our hearts without thinking twice? – Saba Qamar
