Writing from Words


Thanks to all who made Wordles! As I looked at the various word pictures, I was fascinated by unexpected combinations of words that were sitting near each other. They seemed to be begging for the chance to become poems. Like these words from Sandra’s Wordle:

Now find love
gentle sweet,
like blue expectations
attached to grace.

Or these words from Joanne’s Romantics Wordle…

Entirely wild
men poems, like
mountain things.

Or these from one of our T. S. Poetry Wordles…

Shovel burning,
holding Lord Neruda’s
house, milk, songs,
a pomegranate.

Want to try it? Poke through the participants’ links below and see if you can find some poems-in-waiting in their Wordles. Post your poem links to the T. S. Wall, by next Wednesday the 25th, for links and possible feature here at Tweetspeak.

    Yes, I had great fun doing these. So simple to do. Very random (which is great for Random Acts of Poetry :)
