We Wordle #5

February 2, 2014
by

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.

      “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? http://Somethingsithinkabout-annell-annell-annell-annell.blogspot.com

      I loved this one!

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

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

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

      “I am waiting for disaster or treasure
      or the moon to fall in my lap. ”
      But what comes next is this:
      “Nothing
      is a cascade onto my chest, a crown on my wet hair.”

    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.
    Cheers!
