wordle 46

Dear Wordlers,

Marianne McNamara from *elle ecrit* sent me the words for this week, along with this blurb about the author of the two linked poems.
“Poet, essayist, and short story writer Tess Gallagher was born in 1943 in Port Angeles, Washington, to a logging family. Her early years were marked by the rhythms of seasonal work, as well as the landscape of both the Northwest and the Ozarks, where her grandparents lived. Known for her accessible, intimate poetry, and marriage to acclaimed short story writer Raymond Carver.”

Enjoy your word play,

    OK! Let’s “Rock and Roll” The Mermaid story continues… I’m #24 in Mr. Linky,
    But posted the link here too. Because if I comment on your wordpress blog – you’ll end up at my wordpress blog and not at my blogspot where the mermaid poems are. I’ll be back to read tomorrow and during the week. Off to the In-laws for dinner. Happy Sunday all. ~J

  11. I actually thought these words were easier to manage this time. Though they did make me think of a sad and lonely woman. Thanks Brenda and Marianne.

    Had fun with this one. Possibly inspired by a writer’s birthday on Friday. Will be back to read later today. I’ll need something to keep me sane while I’m working on report cards.
