Wednesday Poetry Prompt: Use three or more of the given words

Choose three of more of these words:

premium,  fertile, whirligig, translucence, astronomical, doublespeak,

The Way the Wind Blows

Radio on, voices wander
In one ear and out the other.
The whirligig in the garden is
Caught up in a slip stream of air–
Shifts in its shoes,
Dances all this way and that.
Hard to follow the blurring blades –
Colours tumble into a singular translucence,
As words flit by, all light fluff,
Spun on doublespeak – flickering
Fertile fancies – turn on
A sad premium, ambiguous
The cost … possibly, astronomical
Still the world spins on
Watches the whirligig in the garden.

-Krina Ulmer
