We Wordle #4

January 27, 2014


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

Contributors and Their Poems
harsh, hurt, humiliation, Annell
rendering, rules, ridicule, Jules
crowd, caught, changing, Elizabeth
birth, brazen, bone,  Nicole
pretty, pay, platitudes,  Marian
translation, tarragon, tongue,  Irene
water, watch, woman,   Roslyn
single, sacrifice, sky,  Robyn
obvious, orange, oil,  Barbara
asking, all, answers,  Misky
desire, darkness, deeply,  Elizabeth again
lunatic, locusts, lived,   Belva

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. :)

    Somehow these all fell together and resonated in the now.

    Writing a haibun allowed me to use all the words:

      Haibun! This rabbit likes them even more than carrots.

    Poetry is the best therapy:

    PS. My apologies. The drastic change in weather (wind chill hovering near -40 degrees) has caused my hip to flare up and that makes sitting at the computer pure agony. Hopefully, I will be back later to read what each of you has posted. Thanks for understanding.

    Not sure where this came from. The tarragon, I suppose.

      I’m smitten. Must be the tarragon.

      Barbara, Tarragon is always a winner. Of to have a taste.

    Quick poem here

      Tarragon is a powerful herb, as you well know. Visiting and nibbling.

    Used them all…t’was fun !

    • March 10, 2014 9:27 am

      Well done! I’d love to read it. Come back and leave a link, please.

    • March 10, 2014 9:28 am

      Thank you, thank you. Off to look upon your sky.

        Looked for a place to leave a response and couldn’t find the button. Am I just screen blind?

        Anyway, I completely recognize that feeling of waiting for criticism vultures to pounce. There have been so many powerful writings for this prompt, and I don’t believe for a second it depended on the word list.

        Enjoyed your poem very much.
