If you found yourself here, welcome, the more the merrier. Please take the time to read and comment on other participants’ poems. I must confess that I had already written my piece Jebediah’s Fire before realizing that it was the third Thursday in the month. Look for a baker’s dozen words next week.
Last week’s response to the wordle by Barbara at Briarcat continues to astound me. It’s a tornado of words that riles my core. Therefore I picked four of the words from her piece Rough as a Cob. From that brilliant piece I took salty, slurping, rural, and chimney. Slurping was an interesting word to incorporate. It brought something unusual to my piece.
I loved Irene’s response to Big Tent Poetry’s closure this week. I lifted the words infusion, filtered, textured, and bridge from her poem, Continue or be Damned. You can find Irene’s work at her blog Lost in Translation. Irene is also a promptress at We Write Poems.
Paula writes shorter pieces at echoes from the silence. I’m enjoying her poetry every week and took two words from a haiku, and two words from her notes surrounding the haiku. The words come from her post Managing to Write. Paula, I’m glad you are managing to write, and joining in every week. From her post we have brandishing, stop, eke, and substituted.FYI:
Here are some instructions Francis Scudellari provides for posting a link in the comments section of blogger:
Blogger comments will let you add basic html, so to make a live link you just need to wrap an "anchor tag" around the name of your poem. I'll try to type the format for it here, but Blogger wants to embed the code, so I have to doctor it a little. Just ignore the asterisks (*) I've typed in below.
First you put in the following "<*a href=", then you add the URL of the post wrapped in quotation marks, then you need to add another ">", then the text you want to use for the link, and finally the closing tag "<*/a*>".
Don't forget to take out the asteriks.
