Way of The Wordle

Perhaps a good approach is to choose
one single word as the key. Attach it
to another, allowing each equal
glints of sunshine. Don’t let either
get scratched out in the process.

Every syllable should add grain to
the whole of final presentation,
bringing it one step closer to level
of almost perfection. Warning here:
at this phase it is easy for poet-player

to pull up, stop, maybe never finish.

    Poets can make their own rules and leave a thought in the reader’s imagination.

    The ideas from the wordle come in different way…but that is certainly a good one.


  5. What a great, original piece. Love the, what seemed to me, “recipe” style of the poem and especially the warning which makes me want to stop writing this reply mid-stre….

    (I agree wholeheartedly with http://vivinfrance.wordpress.com's statement of BRILLIANT!)
