When I read Nicole Nicholson’s poem Homeward, I knew I wanted to take all of the wordle words for this week’s wordle from it. Immediately after reading it, I selected 12 words (and threw in a thirteenth), then I read it a second time and wrote my piece for the week, Aurora Borealis. Homeward is my favorite poem of the year thus far; I will read it throughout my life. If you have not read it, and I noticed that several of you have, treat yourself to it. Better yet, read it aloud, give it voice.
If you are new here, welcome. Each week, I select 12 words from different poems, usually poems written by someone who has posted here. I post them at 12:01 a.m. Mountain Standard Time. The third Sunday of every month, I offer a 13th word for a baker’s dozen. This week’s extra word is “etches.” Have fun writing, and be sure to visit some of the other poets’ pieces.
