Life and Death Tuesday Tryouts @ Margo Roby: Wordgathering

beautiful elegant
alluring fascinating enchanting
petals blooms folds creases
wilting drying creeping
silent devious

Mother Teresa
kind fearless
inspiring healing caring
human advocate poverty disease
disgusting cunning uncaring
dishonest insidious

  1. Absolutely you are doing them right, although in the first one you want to mirror first and last lines, so either add a to weed or remove an from orchid. I adore the Mother Theresa Dick Cheney pairing. You can see how these can lead to expanded poems can’t you? I think it’s a good exercise when one’s brain is stuck.
    Your site looks lovely. A nice, clean theme.

  2. I fixed it. When I wrote it yesterday, I thought that was the case. There are many possibilities using this form as a springboard.
    I prefer my blog to be uncluttered. My blogger site has too many personal things going on. I won’t make that mistake twice. I am a relatively private person, so it really doesn’t suit me to have my life out there for all the public to see or abuse.

  3. I hear you. I try and keep mine relatively clear. One of my self-assignments during the summer is to go through and clean my blog up. I have a second blog that is just for small bits of writing and it has nothing on it other than the small poems:

  4. I’ll check out your site, thanks.

  5. You have made a great success of your diamente – mine was so feeble that I have abandoned it!

    I’m glad to get back in!

  6. Oh hello, from orchid to weed, and then Mother Theresa to Dick Cheney. I’d say these are rocking pieces, Pamela. It’s a good pairing, too.

  7. Brenda, you should give them a try. I love Margo’s prompts, she posts them on Tuesdays. They are always interesting. Mother Teresa and Dick couldn’t be any different, could they?

I appreciate all comments.
