We Wordle #8

February 24, 2014

wwwordle 8

Welcome back, poets, for the eighth We Wordle! This week’s words are mined from poems submitted to Neil’s prompt from this past Thursday, “1000 Birds“. I have selected three words from each poem.

Contributors and Their Words:

Irene:  jade, insulated, chandeliers
Jules:  weather, scattered, mourning
Hannah:  albatross, plague, plucked
Elizabeth: messengers, wings, difficult
Viv: quest, mysteries, morph
Nicole: purgatory, royal, journey
Marian: believe, thousand, tumble
Debi: guttural, deceit, twittering
Misky: sea, peeled, pessimism
Barbara: mindless, tornado, hummingbirds
Abby: balancing, whirlwind, scribbling

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. :)

    This one took some time, lots of scribbling, and a sea of contemplation,

      Welcome Michael. Really like your quest of words and where it took you,

        thanks again, and thank you for posting the words in a list as well. I cannot see the wordle, so it enabled me to give this a try.

      Words and their mystery continue to draw us, glad you made it Barbara,

      Barbara: I’m catching up on my reading…and I can’t seem to find your poem.

      • March 15, 2014 2:45 pm

        I’m re-doing my blogs. Things are all up in the air.

      Old houses whisper as does your poem,

    “After the Disasters” is on my blog
    I posted this message yesterday, but can’t find it now, so I’ll try again!

      A quiet calm response to disaster…when it is most difficult to find a balance,
