blend

Wordle#52-Sunday Whirl-04-15-2012
blend  by Teri H Hoover

the blend of sweet
flexible colors-
subtle exchange of hue
circled
centered
richer in those depths
flames spring forth-
a trick of the dramatic hysterical heat
forceful energy diminishes outward
a push blown out to the edges
fading
with a breath
lost
in a glance





The words: blend, sweet, flexible, exchange, richer,flames, dramatic, forceful,  energy, push, glance, breath, 
tricks,

    1. Brenda- It was the idea of color that gave my wordle words a center. Thanks for another great set of words.

  2. I do like the poems that use as few words as possible beyond the wordle list. Even so, I forgot this was a wordle...

    1. Margo- Now that I have a few wordles under my belt, I can say I enjoy both the very concise ones as well as the longer ones. I find it much harder to write the longer ones though.Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hey Mary- I wanted the intensity to fade away- and that is where the wordle went. Thanks for visiting.

  8. I immediately got the image of a candle flame - flickering and then blown out.

    1. Barb- This wordle was definitely about energy-and the candle flame image works really well.

    1. Irene- It was a challenge, to keep the words from blowing out- what I hoped would be a gradual and subtle observation. Thanks for your input.

    1. Libby-- I do to too- the more lingering the ending the better... unless of course it is abrupt! :-)

  12. I like "subtle exchange of hue" - very much spoke to me of visual art - but I think it could work for poetry too.

  13. Your verse takes me to the workshop of a glass blower... flames heated, swirling, added colors forming and reshaping at the whim of breath. Quiet lovely.
