Dying Mum Flora

dying mum flora.
dim? no, my frugal
mind -- glum foray
from a ugly mind.

mainly dug from
my loud gin farm --
languid from my
mild young farm --
my loud farming
forming my dual.

long Friday mum,
road-flying mum,
dragonfly mum, I
glorify mum and
find mum a glory.

my mad furlong! I
grimly am found,
languid from my
mouldy gin farm,
laying from mud,
in my glad forum.

dingy mum flora
dying from maul --
find a glory, mum,
gray old mum.

Tornado (+) 

Thankful to all our cloud-studying boffins. Amazing how in a human's aging-span or two, our world has built tools to ID tornado-making winds out of thin air, and warn thousands about it in a flash.

Tornado cloud took a path right across my roof, but did not touch ground to hurt folks or things in our town. Pal, cat, and I sat tight in our bathroom for an hour and a half, waiting for klaxons to stop. Scary, but no harm!

bah -> blah
crumby -> crumbly
girding -> girdling
starting -> startling
Lo! -> LOL
DIY day -> dilly-dally

Glob and gob, but such pairs having origins in sound symbolism don't count for as much.

I did a typo on that whal-clothing post, my automatic typing apparatus substituting "clinch" for "cinch." But it didn't turn my phrasing bad! Which additional words can I turn into synonyms by adding an L?

Photo caption, pun 

Photo: A pants-clinching strap, which has a half-turn in it. It has a bunch of whit whals on it. So... möbius dick

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
