The Name of the Wind

Posted: February 13, 2017 in nature poems

Tonight at    Kim is in charge of the Quadrille ~ we are tasked with writing a 44 word poem that includes the word ‘ghost’. A word that shouts ‘cliche’ so avoiding that trap is the REAL challenge! So here’s something a little experimental.

is – Seen in Trees
is – Endless Traveller
is – From Any Direction
is – Unspoken
is – Vehicle for Clouds
is – Bringer of Rain
is – Shape-shifter
is – Disturber of Seas
is – Ghost of Sighs
is – Rustler of Leaves
is – Mover of Shadows
is – Knife for the Cold

  2. This is wonderful, love the experiment… ghost of sighs is a great combination.

  3. Brilliant response to the prompt 🙂

    I love the experiment, Paul – so refreshing that ‘ghost of sighs’ and ‘rustler of leaves’! I also like it when the title is part of a poem.

    I like this style of list poem muchly….mover of shadows…wow.

  8. Truedessa says:

    Well, I certainly enjoyed the experiment – very unique and modern

  9. Lovely experiment. The repeat of Is, creates a sound of what the Ghost of Sighs would sound like. And everything else. Brilliant!

  10. very nice take on the prompt Paul…a windy retort.

    Interesting how the melding of ‘from any direction-unspoken’ sparks my curiosity.
