Cryptic Witches One and All!

ORAL GRATIFICATION OR MENTAL MASTURBATION

What an exquisite and intricate organ is the mind of mankind. We developed the ability to communicate through spoken language in order to express our thoughts to each other, to communicate ideas precisely, which means nicely. On average people use a lexicon of 50,000 words to facilitate this function. About 50% of everything that we say or write in the English language will utilize only 100 words and yet we have created a vocabulary encompassing millions of expressions. To what purpose?
We want to play. Whatever you want to call your favoured form of mental gymnastics, whether it be as high faluting as philosophy as base as innuendo or as simple as word association, we all participate in the game at some level, some of us at every level.
What dizzying heights of convolution will we reach then with our high tech toys, our internet intimacies with faceless friends? You are some of the nicest people I have never met. Or are you? At its best blogging opens the door to the formation of friendship based on a level of honesty impossible to achieve anywhere else. Who am I if not my thoughts and ideas? The need for duplicity is destroyed, what use is a mask when your face cannot be seen. You cannot judge on appearances when you are blinded by the light. In years to come will we say love at first insight?

Are you a cryptic witch? You ask
And I hasten to reply.
What else would you have me be?
When I’m writing in the sky.

A mystical minx? Maybe.
An incomprehensible siren?
A secretive sorceress perhaps
Or a recondite beldam

I am all and none of these.
Which witch would you like?
I aim to please.
But whether it’s your or my gratification,
That provides the impetus for my oration
I will leave in the air to enhance the titillation.

Never be too revealing
It's fun to be slightly concealing.

You play well Cathy...

Thanks,...... Galen.

Noticed the discworld novels in your profile. My mother-in-law keeps giving me those. I can't remember any names, but I generally like them, although some tend to start going on and on and on and on. I'm thinking the Holywood one in particular.

Great post! And if I use my special template, it reveals a coded, filthy message just for me. This is way better than Sudoku! I shall call it "Seduce-ku".

Wonderful words,
Worthy of seconds and thirds...

Beautifully done, Cathy.

Words on a screen, I'm glad I didn't think of that. What's your daughter doing in Athens? Is she going to be here at Easter.
