Microwordling for WWP

 http://wewritepoems.wordpress.com/ gave us a group of words to put into pairs and use in poemlets.   I only did one set of pairs, to my shame.  The words are:  gathering  oak  colour  membrane  voice  limb


The limb of oak creaked and cracked
tumbled from force of wind on wood.
Habitat of birds transformed
to home of insects, fungi, lichen,
finally to winter warming fuel.


The rich and powerful coloratura voice
intoned the colourful recitative
with sultry passion, on a single breath.


The gathering storm crashes through the membrane
of a clear blue sky, bringing booming thunder,
machine gun hail  battering those beneath
only to disappear as quickly as it came.

    Nicely done wordle. The words flow without sounding forced as wordles sometimes do (at least when I write them!) But they are fun.

    well done Viv


  4. I like how the three poemlets interwove with each other. To me, I could read this a couple of different ways, one of which being all of them speaking of the storm but selecting a different scene of it to focus on. Even the middle section, which at first read seems to be about an opera but reading into it could also be about the storm as well.



  5. Viv, all three are lovely. Nicely done.



  6. An interesting and staccato transformation of the three pairs into a violent rendering of Mother Nature’s power. I love the old gal particularly the above selected children: insects, fungi, lichen. and birds too. Stay out of the rain Viv, you know sugar melts.

    I love your micropoetry. Such descriptive power.


  8. Tilly Bud says:

    That’s the only time I’ve seen the word ‘coloratura’ in a poem. Well done!

    The first and the third speak to me. ‘machine gun hail’ – love that.

    I agree with Amy, that the first one is a stunner.


  11. Viv, of course you know it was the verse about the coloratura that caught me by the heel and would not let go until I formed a little tune and sang it to myself. The song itself is not consequential, but the inspiration to bring music to it was irresistible! Loved this. Amy
