Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Wordle #29
I have been blogging creative writing in the form of micro-poetry for nearly four (4) years. In this time, I have been intrigued with Wordles. However, I will openly confess — I have been intimidated by them. On several occasions, I have copied/pasted the lists to my ongoing creative work spot (from various memes) … but copied/pasted is as far as the writing went. As many of my reader’s are aware, my poetry is predominantly “micro”. I have toyed with a other versions, but short-versions suit my personality and time constraints best. Nevertheless, on my ongoing “to try list” remains the daunting “Wordle”!
Last week, I attempted writing a Haiku/Senryu using three (3) random words. In my mind’s eye, with my muse wholeheartedly agreeing … this was a micro-form of Wordle! Yea Yea Yea!! Intrigued with the prospect of tackling my creative nemesis, I used Random Word Generator — the result was Twilight Dance. With generous encouragement from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, I am stepping out of my comfort zone … attempting my first Wordle … and tackling my very own Sciamachy with my very own drivel. Here goes …. 😀
Fountain of limp shame
Summer continues to stare
Yearn for burnish stamp
Theatre of tinted leaves
Of patient winter
Sciamachy with autumn’s past
The Wordle contains 12 words. List of words for this week is:
1. Burnish (polish, brighten)
2. Drivel (foolish talk)
6. Sciamachy (an act or instance of fighting a shadow or an imaginary enemy)
1. Use at least 10 of the words to create a story or poem
2. The words can appear in an alternate form
3. Use the words in any order that you like

Wow, Becca, I looked at the list and it is daunting! I understand why you have been hesitant to give Wordle-ing (how’s that for a word?) a try! I love the poem you crafted!
Oh, Grace — you are most kind — I just hope it makes a modicum of sense to the reader. I like the word “wordling” 😀
I found this list less daunting than most — plus the encouragement at Mindlovemisery was supportive … I could have started with 3 words at first, and then worked my way — but once I started, it seemed an interesting challenge to get all of them used with the train-of-thought-path I found myself meandering down. I appreciate you leaving me a feedback note. Thank you!!

=) I am glad you did too!
Good for you! And I learned a new word: sciamachy. I do love “burnish,” too. That’s how the eclipsed moon looks this morning: burnished.
I love “burnish” too — I learned “sciamachy” as a new word as well … don’t know I’ll ever use it again, though!! 😀 I am glad to scratch “scary Wordle” off my list!! LOL
