We Wordle #03

January 20, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 10.18.27 PM

Welcome back, poets, for the third We Wordle! This week’s words are mined from poems submitted to Elizabeth’s prompt from this past Thursday, “What’s Your Sign?“. I have selected three words from each poem.

Contributors and their words:
midnight, underground, coin (Annell)
fractured, illusory, topaz (Jules Paige)
electricity, tones, swan (Robyn Greenhouse)
moon, ebb, throng (Debi Swim)
scales, burn, give (Barbara)
fluttering, kindling, signals (Elizabeth)
lithe, lapis, haze (Nicole)
baroque, lyricism, goddesses (Irene)
roaring, fame, closet (Marian Veverka)
joke, fire, leaping (Sara, Purple in Portland)
breath, words, water (Ms. Pie)
brush, shelf, pedantic (Misky)

Here are the rules for playing.
1) You are not required to use all the words in the word list. If you want to, that’s entirely up to you.
2) One helpful possibility: 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.

Have fun creating. 🙂

    Just changed one word…I think. I told a story via a haibun to use all the words.
