We Wordle #5

February 2, 2014

Welcome back wordleholics.

As usual we mined three words each from poems submitted to last Thursday’s prompt by Elizabeth.

slung, heaviness, substance – Misky
elephant, trunk, queer – Robyn
fireflies, ribbons, porch – Annell
sliver, full, crescent – Yousei
cascade, grandmother, incandescent – Irene
thrumming, child-like, fool – Elizabeth
green, smell, tinkling – Marian
patchouli, wild, herbal – Debi
persimmon, crown, hem – Nicole
formidable, typing, rhyme – Jules
rope, rain, jump – Hannah

Rules for playing follows:
1) You are not required to use all the words in the word list. Though if you totally want to, you may wow us.
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 writing a poem out of any of these words.

    Again the words shout their story.

      “odours redolent and herbal, oranges, persimmon,
      did crown the hollow hours like floral, rich patchouli;”
      Rich, rich imagery.

      Hmmm…”an elephant’s trunk
      slung across his neck”

    Here’s mine. I’m just popping out the door for the day, so I’ll be back later this evening to read and comment.

      “Jolly, jumpy,
      elephant tusky, and he grinned thinking
      he’d make a bloody good sandman.”
      Can I tell you’re having fun yet?

    I’m sorry my thoughts seemed to avoid the black rectangle of words, I only used a few. Perhaps later I will try again?

    here goes something

    On the fly… (OK with a little thought and work too.)

    Used all of them, and still laughing,

      I loved this one!

      “Thoughts, without rhyme or reason, began an elephant
      I’m gravitating toward the elephant

    Who is The Alchemist?

      “Her red hair unfurled into
      a crown of flames licking
      the blackened air,”
      Yea, the hair has it.

        Thank you, Irene. That image was inspired by both images of Brigid I found online plus the cover of Tori Amos’ Midwinter Graces album. (BTW she seems to love that type of imagery — here’s the poster for her musical, “The Light Princess”.)

    the words took me in a melancholy direction. May have to try again for a more uplifting thought

  9. February 3, 2014 6:11 pm

    Took me a little longer than I expected

      “I am waiting for disaster or treasure
      or the moon to fall in my lap. ”
      But what comes next is this:
      is a cascade onto my chest, a crown on my wet hair.”

    Is it okay I only used one word…

    Thank you for the wordle…I’ll be back to read soon. 🙂

    My poem “The Poet at Work” is on my blog

    I agree, a great group of words and Everyone did a great job with them!

  12. February 6, 2014 4:55 pm

    Mine is silly, but I had fun with the words.

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with
    SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
    not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.
