A Lotus Dream The Sunday Whirl-Wordle #8





Her alluring lotus eyes tell enchanting stories:
a kinship of women with beautiful torsos
suffocating you in sleep with a
wish as inspiring as
strange, devious voices carried
on the bold winds

  1. This is wonderfu, Pamelal. Lotus eyes is brilliant. I love the imagery, and sound the wind carrying voices brings.

  2. Your new blog is spectacular, Pamela. And I love the poem. “Alluring lotus eyes” is perfect. “Devious voices carried
    on the bold winds” is splendid!

  3. Small but spectacular, Pamela.

  4. i like picturing lotus eyes telling enchanting stories. I can’t decide if this represents good or evil, but the ending of the poem leads me to believe it is evil!

  5. I know exactly what you mean… love it!

  6. Oh, I love how you used “lotus”!! Those eyes…they can be spell binding!

    Here’s mine: Inspiring Dreams.

    (OH…and YAY for hypertexting your post on the wordle site!!) πŸ˜‰

  7. It does happen, Laurie. Thanks.

  8. Just seemed to fit, Paula. After a second pass, that is. Thanks for the link site, it sure did simplify things.

  9. Very evocative! The first line itself paints a vivid picture. Nicely done. πŸ™‚

  10. Joining the chorus, love the lotus eyes. But, also the devious voices. Once again, I got caught up in your flow and imagery and was shocked that it ended so soon. I love how each of us takes these same words and then makes them our own. Here’s to a multitude of voices, devious or not, may they always sing!


  11. Vivid and slightly scary poem, Pamela. Great use of the wordle for a good “careful what you wish for” cautionary tale. πŸ™‚

  12. Yes, Traci. Good advice, indeed. Thanks.

  13. Excellent use of the wordle, Pamela.

  14. Compact but very evocative. I really like “alluring lotus eyes”.

  15. Francis, I believe many people do πŸ™‚

  16. I like your new blog and that poem is wonderful.

  17. She of the devious eyes is shockingly vivid with so few words. Well done.

  18. Pamela, so concise but so evocative. It recalled the Odyssey for me, those alluring women and and bold winds, keeping Odysseus from home.


  19. Love the Odyssey, Richard. I hadn’t thought of that, but I suppose your right. I just didn’t want to write about the flower itself. I went in a different direction.

    I didn’t think it was possible to use every word in the Wordle to make a coherent poem, so I didn’t even try–but you did it! I’m impressed!

  21. Thanks mmt. I love wordles, and am usually up for the challenge πŸ™‚

  22. I am amazed by those who can use the words of a wordle in a short, concise, meaningful and understandable poem. Such skill. Well done.

  23. Thanks Mike, I love wordles. Sometimes they call to be short.

I appreciate all comments.
