Wayward Words

compounded, confounded
windblown words
swirling, curling
upward as if some
kite, a plaything
fishtailing on an
updraft without
a fishnet
leaving me speechless
clueless – wrung out
limp like a soggy
dishrag without
a voice


We’re playing with compound words in the Graden  today

  1. This is great. I always enjoy a poem which is about the writing process and especially one that ties that to the human need for self-expression.
