Welcome to Sunday's Whirligig, a place for you and your muse to find inspiration. Each Wednesday I will post 12 words with which you may create a poem, a short story, or some other piece of writing. Use the words in any form, as many of them as you wish.

You may link your writing to this site beginning at midnight (Pacific Time) each Sunday. Use the linking button, which will "magically" appear at midnight (Pacific Time) Sunday. The Inlinkz button will remain operable for one week. Enjoy!

If you'd like to contribute 12 words, please e-mail them to me:

THIS WEEK'S WORDS come from "Weather" by Linda Pastan: menace, father, black, childhood, blocking, light, speak, throwing, window, plain, dazzling, after

Words will be posted here each Wednesday (most of the time).

Twelve words too many? Then visit Sunday Scribblings 2, where you will find one word to kick-start your writing.


  1. This is a good mix of light and shade - like the view from many a window i imagine - thank you Magical


    good luck, linda pastan

  3. Magical you appear to have twice as much light as there an alternative word or shall we stick with 11?

    1. I think there are 12---at least there are 12 superimposed on the photo! :)

    2. But just for you, Old Egg, I've corrected the text!

  4. Just to explain to all other readers that I cut and paste the prompt words from the text into word rather than from the illustration.

  5. very nice
