Wordle 9 ~ A Baker’s dozen

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.

Nicole blogs at Raven’s Wing Poetry.  Thank you for giving us Homeward, Nicole. It is an honor to have you among the wordlers.

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.

    I used the words for an Etheree prompted by photos I took this past week that are posted on another blog.

      Brenda, that was lovely and fits perfectly with your chosen pic. I think I will give that a try–finding a pic to associate with the words.

        Donna, Thank you, I’m glad you like my piece. The writing came before the picture, though. I saw the northern lights both in my home of Montana, and in Alaska. I wanted the picture to add to the reader’s visual.

        Choosing a picture can be helpful, though. Or read through the words several times, then think of a setting, or character. Let the words drive the action. If you haven’t read Nicole’s poem, do that, too. It’s chock full of inspiration.
        Have fun!

    I’ll be back when the poem falls into place, but since I prefer haiku, there’s no way I’ll use all 13 words in one piece! 🙂

    Oh, my. What a way to start a Sunday morning. Hopefully, I’m able to return. LOL

  12. Susannah says:

    I love these sunday wordles. 🙂

    This is my 3rd week here and I used 11 of the words this week.
