Wordle 2


This week I knew that I wanted to tackle a sestina, so I selected words that might work well as end words in lines. In her poem, Hidden Meanings, Pamela Sayers explores the origins of her name. I took the words scribbling, whispered, resilient, and hillsides from that piece on her blog, Poetry with me. At Sadly Waiting for Recess, Mr. Walker shares a glimmering exploration of music with students in his Jazz Talk where I lifted thrumming, sustain, animated, and train. From Gloria's response to last week's Wordle Words, I used aching, visions, revenge, and thirst. This piece at Thoughts in Poetry and Prose, was one of my favorite responses to the prompt. Thank you all for your pariticipation in last week's wordle. Be sure and visit some of the other pieces.

Post your response any time this week.

Hi, Brenda.

There I was, wondering what to do, and pling! a wordle. I'm afraid I took your words off into a dark alley, though.
