In the silence of the studio
The artist inhales inspiration
Ideas flit from heart to head to hand
There in the penumbra
Shades are found
Shades between the perfect shadow
Shades so close in value they almost become a haze
Shapes created upon the surface
Shades of oxidized copper
Gracefully fill the plane
Sands of time slip through the shaded glass
Peppery graphite kisses add the needed spice

I like the peppery graphite. Nice take on the wordle–I love it when the list words disappear.
Annell, I’m with Barb, I forgot about the words as I read. This is beautiful writing. I love the repetition of shades.
What a beautifuol poem about artistic creation, Annell. You have ‘nailed’ the worldle form, have painted a masterpiece of words.
What can I say that has not been said already, Annell. This is a painting in itself. Beautiful.
Wow! One would get the impression you are an artist. Whether you’ve ever touched a paintbrush or not, you are a poet. This is an amazing piece of work. Without “Sunday Whirl” in the title, I would never have guessed it was written from a wordle.
So beautiful… I especially like:

This is beautiful Annell, I love what you did with the wordle words. 🙂
Wow – this is wonderful. I feel I am right there in the studio with the artist and feel that sense of being lost in the creative process.
“Penumbra” is such a great word, and I also loved “Peppery graphite kisses.”
Fantastic poem, Annell! Such an apt description of a creative session; loved the use of “penumbra” (it will probably end up in this Sunday’s wordle), and the repetition of “shades.” You lose your sense of time in the poem, just as an artist or writer does when the creative juices are flowing. Great first entry into the wordle ranks! 🙂
