A dark, painful and difficult topic - and great use of the wordle words.
Wow, you took a common (I think) topic and gave it substance and form. Painful and lovely, all at once.Thank you, Pamela! Read my Big Red Tent Wordle Poem here.
OK, resent me because I am praising you. This is a good poem!
Powerful response, Pamela. comfort is an alley.So much I like about this. thanks
Agreed with Julie...painful and beautiful at the same time. This, oddly enough, conjured up 19th century London for me...homeless women and children...TB-infected all around...dark alleys where the forgotten can be found Very heartbreaking. Or then again, this could be 21st century America.-Nicole
Thanks BrendaC!I enjoyed yours also!Pamela
Julie thanks and it is good to see you back writing!Pamela
Thanks Rall I appreciate that ;)Pamela
BrendawThanks for saying so!Seems most went dark on this one!Pamela
Nicole interesting that you would mention 19th century London! I can see the connection. I was thinking more of 21st century America. Thanks!Pamela
oh , this is a heavy one. wow!funny how everyone seems to be writing dark poems with this one; I think alexie's emotion carried through his words.nice work, Pamela!
I think that might be so AngieThanks!Pamela
Great work! Thanks for sharing!-Weasel
the line in this i keep coming back to is "you keep saying." as simple as it is, it adds another dimension to this!
Carolee thanks!I enjoy these wordle prompts I certainly enjoyed yours as well!
comfort is an alleyA profound phrase which conjures up a plethora of images - there's a sense of past, present and future in this. Very nice.
SusanThanks for the nice comment!Pamela
Really, really striking - I loved effects of the lack of punctuation, the punchy lines, and above all the second occurrence of the repeated line - I find myself extremely impressed.
wtaThanks for a very nice and thoughtful comment!Pamela
This is good, Pamela! And I love how differently each one of us has interpreted the wordle words.
Thanks Marianne! And we all do interpret it differently!Pamela
You really did those words proud with this post!
Great use of the prompt, Pamela.http://thelaughinghousewife.wordpress.com
The tone is relentless, given the repetition, which works so very well.
So disturbingly sad, and beautifully written.
Stans thanks for that!Pamela
Deb I love wordles!Thanks!Pamela
Thank you Cynthia!Pamela
This left me wanting to know more of the back-story. Well done.
