We Wordle #13

April 6, 2014


This wordle comprises a selection of words from poems submitted to Prompt 206 “Which Childhood?” So the following are the poets who’ve submitted poems and the list of words which I’ve picked:

Ms Pie: embryonic, borrowed, turtle
Nicole: toothpicks, earlobes, fatness
emangsteroo: fighter, hatching, jagged
Jules: aura, ripples, unwrapping
purpleinportland: stockings, shame, songs
Marian: color, emerald, snapshots
Misky: marshmallows, pine, sap
Stimmyabby: dissecting, microscope, almonds
Annell: snakes, coastal, leaf
Barbara: record, books, homing
Debi: unseen, lemon, foot
Irene: lame, birds, roots

Kind of a delightful potpourri, so hopefully they serve as your inspiration for meanings and associations so you create your own particular scent of a poem. That’s the whole idea. Be free to change forms and tenses of the words. And you may choose to use a sprinkling of the words or (gulp) the entire lot. Just follow your muse and play. Don’t you forget, this is the month for poetry and love. Or love for poetry. Or… (gulp gulp) never mind.

    I posted a link…somewhere
    I think (?)

    Mine is pretty much one big mashed metaphor. 🙂

    Irene, I just had to let it flow. In the end it seemed to be about Dodo Birds which completely surprised me.

    Used just a couple of words, because I’m so sane here

    Sanity is over-rated 🙂
    I think I may have broken my brain…

      I do agree, Jules. I nearly broke me today.

        That’s what I get though for combining 5 prompts 🙂

        Was that better than writing for them individually?
        I had fun none-the-less.

          I do believe we have a case of prompt surfeit. But excess is the key word for April anyhow.

        • April 8, 2014 6:49 am

          So many prompts…so little time.
          I used to feel bad about combining prompts.
          But it helps especially when I’m spending a good portion of the day watching my grandchildren.

          I always think I’ll have time to go back and read everyone. But when night falls, I’m bushed.

        • April 8, 2014 6:52 am

          Everyone’s too bushed I agree. So don’t beat yourself over it. Write. Don’t read. Or read but say nothing.

      Not sure why Jules but I could not link your page.
