Whirligig 177

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 (or as few) 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 "Counting" by Margarita Engle: white, jungle, record, parents, police, shanties, pretend, native, census, silver, confound, ditch

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


  1. I liked all writings for Whirligig 177, but especially the last one.

    I don't have a word press account, so wasn't able to use it to comment.


    it is good to join ...

  3. Happy New Year!
