We Wordle Number 3

We Write Poems is branching out in new directions, and this week they give us a huge wordle from which to choose our words.

WWP wordle 3

Swans and lithe goddesses
throng the shore at ebb of tide,
fluttering insects seek their prey.
Beneath the lapis water,
creatures with scales play –
the lyricism of a staged ballet
swirling in concert, leaping away.
An illusory haze hovers
around the burgeoning moon
as hush descends.
It is night.

    Thank you VIv, another lovely picture.


  2. I read this and think of Greek mythology — wonder if Zeus is hiding inside any of those swans ;). This is a beautiful scene that could easily become a painting.

    So delightful. It has the feeling of dusk: the lyricism of a staged ballet.

    Interesting arrangement of the choices given…

    Your wordle enjoyment shines through making a vivid and superb image, Viv. Brava!



  6. “Beneath the lapis water,

    the lyricism of a staged ballet
    swirling in concert, leaping away.”

    This esp., really, really lovely. I am in awe of this one!


  7. This reads as if the opening to a beautiful ballet or play.

    These wordles fascinate me, Viv. I just took a look at the rules and it doesn’t sound too scarey. But I don’t write poetry. 🙂 Hope this week’s off to a better start?

    It always amazes me how you are able to create something so coherent, artistic and meaningful out of imposed words!


  10. Talk about serendipity…this morning I was thinking about how much I miss the swan that used to be on the little lake outside my window. He was killed a couple of years ago by an arrant golf ball. :0( So today, he stopped by for a little visit.


    • aberrant or errant? I had to laugh at the idea of an arrant golf ball standing up and berating its owner for lifting his head!

      Swans are the only thing I enjoy about being in hospital: there is a lake outside with two swans that I have known for nearly 20 years.


  11. I felt like I was watching an artist paint a picture as I read this, and I guess I was, actually.
