We Wordle #15

April 21, 2014


Did you have an egg-exciting weekend?

Well, whether you did or not, it’s time to hunker down to write a new poem. This time we had to back-pedal to poems written to Prompt 207 History, provided by Nicole. We had inadvertently bunny-hopped over it because we were…simply too egg-excited, this being National Poetry Month and all and we’re still in poem-a-day mode. Yep.

Without further ado, here are the contributors and their words.

stimmyabby: flags, colors, bruises
Jules: dead, fish, balloon
thisgirlremembers: specter, shroud, flush
Barbara: chromosomes, mountain, glue
Debi: tragedy, God, pirates
Misky: magnolia, leaf, tree
James: buffalo, saplings, wildflowers
Viv: famine, pun, chorus
Elizabeth: love, deer, whirlwind
Nicole: clawing, scales, streetlamp
Irene: fossil, flesh, water

Use as few or as many words from the list. Change the form and tense of any word you wish. Write a poem about anything under the sun. Then post your link in the comments section. If you don’t have a blog, you could simply paste your poem in the comments if you wish to share.

Note: We Write Poems will run the final Monday wordle prompt the last Monday of April 2014. We’ll still be hosting prompts on Thursday, alternating a regular prompt with a wordle prompt. Just so that you’ll keep to your writing practice. You heard it, it’s a practice.

    Weird, is there no one else in this room? No wonder I feel spacious this morning. 😀

      Apart from Christoper of course. He’s not no one.

        Oh yes I am, no one and even less than that.

          I’m Nobody! Who are you?
          Are you – Nobody – too?
          Then there’s a pair of us!
          Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know!

          How dreary – to be – Somebody!
          How public – like a Frog –
          To tell one’s name – the livelong June –
          To an admiring Bog!
          –Emily Dickinson

        I know… I was also surprised at the lack of company here this time around! Glad to see you too, Irene.
