We Wordle #02

January 13, 2014


We Wordle #02

Welcome back poets for the second We Wordle. This week’s words are mined from poems submitted to Elizabeth’s Thursday Weather Report prompt. I have selected three words from each poem. Have fun, and I look forward to reading your creations.

Annell: umbrella, whisper, hang
Viv: strawberry, mood, bread,
Elizabeth: thunder, home, running
Nicole: fishnet, sun, smirked
Robyn: sugar, storm, wanting
Marilyn: floor, hissing, rain
Denise: rattling, siren, window
Jules: mumble, strings, stirs,
Pamela: abandoned, dawn, floats
Irene: scrubbed, morning, glorious

Here are the rules for playing.
1) You needn’t use all the words in the word list, unless you want to.
2) Generate associations and meaning from the words you see.
3) Feel free to change the tense or form of the word.

If you’re feeling stuck, try:
1) juxtaposing the words
2) think of alliteration, assonance and consonance
3) Find a framing device for the words you see, like another prompt for triggering your flow of thought. You can try Qweekly’s Monday prompt or any other prompt on the Internet.

    Hi Misky. I rarely try wordles but it was fun after all : )

      Left a comment on your lovely blog, Debi. I loved the mumbling thunder; so reminiscent of summer.

    I am really liking the challenge of using all the words,

    This poem seems to be a Litany of Scars/


    • January 13, 2014 8:38 am

      A very good read; fast and tense!

    I used all the words, but feel there is still some work to be done with this piece.

    • January 14, 2014 6:34 am

      I’m not sure that it does require more work. I really liked it. I left you a comment on your blog, Robyn.

    A lot to choose from. Thanks for the prompt Miskey! This is my first foray on a new discovery!

      A very warm welcome to you, Hank, and thank you for joining in. I was completely bowled over by your wordled poem. I like tense, tightly written poems that lead me along. Adventure in poetry. Lovely. Thanks! I left a comment on your blog, Hank.

    I had a blast mixing this with Qweekly’s Another Country and I was able to use all of them, too!! 🙂

    • January 14, 2014 6:53 am

      You never fail to amaze with your talent, Hannah. Thanks for much for joining in.

    Took me a while to get there… but I managed to combine Qweekly (I think) with the Word list. Thanks all…(used ’em all).

    • January 14, 2014 6:54 am

      Enjoyed the use of slang in your poem, Jules. Hadn’t heard some of those terms in years. Great fun!

  11. January 14, 2014 2:03 am

    Nice selection of words. Used most of them without reaching too far

    • January 14, 2014 6:55 am

      And I liked it very much. Great tempo to it, and very cheerful.

  12. January 14, 2014 5:13 am

    Hi! Thanks so much for this beautiful prompt. I attempted a verse with all thirty words… Here it is… The Umbrella Holder

        Thanks Misky. I’ve been reading We Write Prompts for a long time but failed to answer. I liked participating in this one.

        • January 15, 2014 8:48 am

          That’s lovely to hear. Thanks.

  14. January 14, 2014 3:34 pm

    I enjoyed this so much, that I wrote two poems.

    • January 15, 2014 3:06 am

      I absolutely adore the second one. I can see those inflated characters sweeping along in the air! Thank you so much for joining in this week!

    Summer days on Lake Erie, a tale of charter fishermen on my blog

      Loved that poem, Marian. Love the tense scene with the fish and fishermen. Wonderful. And thanks for joining in this week.
