Through the Exterior


Sunday Wordle -September 17, 2012
Through the Exterior by Teri. H  Hoover



In this silent longing, peering
through layers,
the silhouette of the artist emerges,
drawing.
Color saunters in,
like a lyric
written for a lover. Winding its way
around the heart.
Rich tresses, of intimate buoyancy,
desires exposed, in a sensuous lift.
Iterations of alliteration, begin to bend and break.
All that reining in with measured living,
Slips away with one simple touch.


A wordle challenge from Walt Wojtanik:
From the thirteen words, choose one word to use as a part of your title. That word becomes your “theme” for your wordle.
Using the “other” twelve words, craft your wordle poem.  The words  artist , sensuous, lilting, rich,exterior,silent, silhouette, color, saunter, lyric,  peering, alliteration, tresses

Notes: Firstly- I am using a tablet (not my laptop) to write and post this. I am unsure how this piece will format. We will see. I am away, visiting a friend and considering how to best pursue all things creative, this piece came to life.

  2. Gorgeous writing, Teri! I was not able to use exterior and you worked it in first!

    "Color saunters in, like a lyric written for a lover" is spectacular! And I love: "Iterations of alliteration, begin to bend and break." Every line explodes off the page!

  6. However passion is expressed, the rest of the world drops away when it happens and we are in the zone. Beautifully said and written,

  12. You may laugh, but I thought of eating a brownie. Perhaps it was because I was trying on some pants and wondered if I could get my waist-line thinner. Exercise would probably help. But I'd rather sit and write verse. :)
