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.

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 two weeks. Enjoy!

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

THIS WEEK'S WORDS come from "Lines Written at Flying Point Beach" in Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems, by Billy Collins: vicinity, pond, wind, shorebirds, water, thin, wonders, bicycling, natural, dunes, distance, cabin

Words will be posted here each Wednesday.

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


  1. What is better than aimless love..well maybe narcotic flowers ;)

    1. Perhaps those narcotic flowers are growing behind the cabin near the pond. Or maybe (sadly) they've been destroyed by a random wind.

    2. We will let you know when we venture forth and whirl and gig ;)

    3. This conversation sounds very Baudelaire to me !
      Les Fleurs Du Mal

    4. Well i know a certain little sick flower but we're more familiar with riddles than Baudelaire ;)

  2. This week I'm using 'tell' somewhere else. ;)
