Wordle 14

I spent a day in a motel in Rochester, New York this week, while our van had some repairs. The repairs were quick and inexpensive (yay!). I spent the day reading many of your poems, and came up with this week’s wordle. From Viv’s poem, This Morning at her blog Vivinfrance, I pulled the words curtains, blink, gild, and marvel. From Tilly Bud’s fantastic piece, Open Letter to Mr. Dickens, Because He Let Me Down at I’m Not A Verse, I pulled rendered, twist, reprehensible, and cast. This poem is fun and full of word play. Finally, from Annell’s at her blog AnnellAnnell Words of a Painter I picked the words whir, scattered, clouds, and scan, from her poem Angels Wait. Happy wordling this week. I won’t be back to Montana for another ten days. It is a crazy long time to be away from home. Thanks for giving me some continuity in my life. You guys rock.

    Hello, fellow wordlers! Here’s my attempt. This one has me a bit mystified. I categorized it as “being human” but I’m open to other interpretations! Thanks, Brenda.

    I can finally go read the wonderful wordle poems that await.

    Have a great week, all!


  12. Marianne says:

    Lovely words this week, except for ‘reprehensible,’ which was downright punishing! You absolutely rock, too, Brenda!


  13. Brenda, this poem came out the tragedy in Norway. An odd circumstance, that, but the words suddenly made sense.

    Hi Brenda, is there some reason my post isn’t being listed?

      Hi Elizabeth, It’s there now. I think when people use different servers, wordpress recognizes them as new users. I always have to approve new users. Usually this isn’t an issue, as I’m at home and check a couple of times daily. But here in Ohio, Julie’s Internet connection is sporadic, and I’m visiting a coffee shop a couple times a week to keep up. So there you have it. I’m glad you’re here wordling! 🙂

  15. Mike Patrick says:

    I managed to evade the men in the white coats long enough to post this. Got to go, here they come again.

  16. Had a bit of difficulty with reprehensible. Thanks for the words everyone. Brenda, thanks for taking the time to post these for us.
