Hi everyone, it's me with your weekly word list poetry prompt. The idea is to use at least 3 of the 20 words listed in either a poem of any length or style, OR a "flash 55" which is a piece of writing consisting of exactly 55 words not counting the title. The prompt stays "live" through Friday. Just write, link, visit, enjoy.
This week's list comes from the lyrics of songs by British singer/songwriter Laura Marling. The first song of hers that I heard was "New Romantic", which I stumbled upon on You Tube.
I was further intrigued by "What He Wrote", a song that sounds very much like something Leonard Cohen would have written.
I also really like "Tick" "Blues Run The Game" and "Nouel" but you'll find your own favorites. If you weren't already into her music, I am betting that you will be presently!
And now, without further ado, your word list!
Each word list is another wonderful introduction to someone fascinating and new to me! I am really loving these word lists Shay!!!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad that you are. That's good news!Delete
I have loved her for many years. Thank you for the reminder.ReplyDelete
Isn't she cool? I only discovered her about 6 months ago.Delete
I've always liked Laura Marling, Shay, good choice! How could I not play this week :-)ReplyDelete
I look forward to reading everyone's tomorrow...
Hey Sunra! So nice to see you!Delete
An excellent list, Shay. I'm not familiar with Marling, but she has a classic voice. I'm currently taking a break after writing 50 poems in eight weeks to close out 2021, but if something slithers to the front of my brain, I will be sure to let you know. Thanks so much for doing these lists, Shay. They are a great resource for us all.ReplyDelete
Understood, dearie. I'm glad you're enjoying the lists!Delete
