Wordplay . . .

Several months ago, a Facebook friend told me about a fun application called Wordle that I’ve been meaning to get around to investigating more.  You simply input a string of words and, at the push of a button, you can create nifty word clouds you can then print off and scan into a JPEG file for decorating t-shirts, cards, calendars, or, in my case, a blog.  Although I haven’t had the time to become super-proficient with it, I did input one of the poems I’ve posted here previously.  And so, because I’m running low on time and material at the moment, and, oh yes, because I thought you might enjoy playing around with your own words as well, I’m posting the jumbled and unjumbled versions of my “deep autumn” haiku as my first Wordle effort.

About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret

    I am not going to try the wordle. But I have scrambled your haiku into another form for what it is worth. Try this

    the crow’s
    deep autumn
    no words left to describe

    I guess there are many ways to toss and mix.
