Anagram Farewell

Talk about challenging!  At NaPoWriMo this morning, we were directed to write a poem by putting our name in an anagram generator.   That generated quite the interesting list of words.  I also decided to combine this with the challenge at Real Toads where we were to write a hello and/or good-bye poem.  I’ve italicized the words that came from the anagrams.

tarot card

ripe pear from tree

sweet spirea scent

rest near ancient spire

entrap sprite and siren

with sepia praise

repeat Pan’s rite of sin

nip and tease at

nape of naked neck

enter garden’s gate

pant and rut till spent

musky rape seed in air

rest on bed of sweet pea

then spin star anise

to  part eastern sky

tern preens and prates

her passionate rant

from aspen grove

sea tears near spent

as lovers must part

  1. Oh man, the anagram generator sounds like a hoot. I shudder to think how much material I’ll get out of my full name!

    Your combination of prompts worked well, very well. Nothing was forced or felt shoved in out of necessity to simply use the words. This was quite an achievement, hon. Thanks so much, Amy

  2. These two prompts fit together very well for both the hello and goodbye. I put my name in earlier and groaned at the choices–which didn’t take me to herbs and animals but to odd sea leavings. Maybe I’ll try again. Meanwhile, thank you for picking up this challenge and leaving a tale of great action and imagery.

  3. Wow, the anagram generator really loved your name, didn’t it? So many poetically-inclined words, Teresa. This is great!
    How lovely to “rest on bed of sweet pea” or to watch a tern preen!

  4. What delicious combinations were lurking in your name. Sepia praise for your moniker,
    Smashing ingredients for poetry. I hate to think what I will end up with when I try.
