Last week’s Saturday posting was a whim. We remain The Sunday Whirl. This week’s word came from a poem called I Was In A Hurry, by Dunya Mikhail. With my radio perpetually tuned in to NPR, I heard her read it aloud on my way to work one morning this week. You can listen to the story if you click on the link. It is worth a visit.
Unusually for me, I’ve had a go at this one. Thanks for.
i have been visiting The Sunday Whirl and started tagging you in my Sunday Savvy series at Lunch Break
However Wordle 101 is the first prompt at which i have participated, thanks for all your lovely wordles; great fun
It’s only noon on Monday and already 40 posts ahead of me. I guess my weekend was full of things besides writing. 😉 Thanks, as always, Brenda, for a great list of words to inspire us to write more.
I’m back. Thanks, Brenda, for the weekly wordles. This is two wordle poems in two days for me.
Thanks for the wordle! Here’s mine.
Thank you for such a wonderful wordle, Brenda. I hope my poem will be enjoyed. http://hopefuljo.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/creativity-project-year-two-day-75/
Richard King Perkins II, I cannot read your whirl because your site is asking for a password and I have no idea what that password is. Sorry. 😦
It’s almost beyond belief (to me) that I wrote my poem before knowing the source material for this week’s words but in one of those odd synchronicities of muse and fate and who knows what else, my lines just flowed Friday night and appear pretty much as they occurred to me then. Now today, after listening to Dunya Mikhail’s heart-wrenching work and words about her losses…I felt a definite chilling sense of wonder…
I got a kick out of this being “wordle 101…”
class, dismissed. 😉
lol, I had the same thought! 🙂
And she’s in! Yay, looking forward to reading everyone’s. 🙂
Somehow I missed the early words. Please don’t forget me the next time. I love the wordle.
I just double checked my sent e-mail, Annell. From here it looks like it was sent to you. Regardless, I usually post them on The Sunday Whirl’s facebook page sometime early Saturday, as well.
Thanks for the Wordle! Here’s my submission:
I always want to hug you after I have been a way a while, Brenda. Even when I don’t post your wordles are a part of my weekends.
Thanks Margo. It’s nice to see your face here. 🙂
I’m always listening to NPR in the car, too. Wrote a story poem this morning. Probably should just call it flash fiction. I simply enjoy participating in your Sunday Whirl, Brenda. Best!
Just clicked on the link above and found it interesting that I had written my little piece Escape from the post on Facebook without seeing your blog post first. Came to the post, got the picture for my post, posted, then read you piece. Thoughts are in the air and we as stations tune in…I sometimes think.
Just one Wordle this week – Preparing for a family gathering so it’s a story continuation, but only 100 words 🙂
Thanks Brenda and to all the Wordlers who make this a place to look forward to writing for and reading!!!
Holiday wishes For Palm Sunday and a jump start for Passover Celebrators. And for everyone – Celebrate being able to write and be creative!!! Cheers.
A bad hair day..no not really..are there bad hair days for writing a poem?
Thank you, Brenda, for creating and continuing this creative outlet. The world feels such a crazy unstable place, and I find this space to be a pillar in my life!
Happy wordling, see you all later, Brenda, thanks for being here for us.
Wow! A chemically enhanced first? Meds have my sleep patterns all whacked out and have me up at 2 AM EST. But I’ll take it.
