Wordplay #4  Daedal

Dae-dal  > 1. intricate: complex  2. ingenious: skillful,
may imply cunning, or cleverness  3. decorated with
many things: especially natural wonders.

Sometimes feels like a dreidel, spinning
round and round. So skilled at using
convoluted verbiage, that on occasion,
even she must stop and try to figure out
what her daedal statements are really
all about.

  1. What a delight! Well done! At first I thought it was words to a “hum.” I like your dae-dal indeed.

      Annell, when I found the word for the day, I also could hear something humming in my head, some song from long ago, using a sound alike word. Finally figured it out. It was by Don McLean, and titled the Dreidel Song. Worked to hard for this one, so had to put it in. Under the circumstances, you are correct, it was a “hum’.

    I like yours a great deal. The dreidel connection is great. I can relate to the piece…not that my work is daedal. 🙂 But I do go back and read it sometimes and say, what was I thinking here?

    Here’s mine.

    This is good practice Elizabeth. Thank you!

      Thanks Brenda, it really makes you stretch a bit doesn’t it? And I often find myself trying to figure out what it is I am trying to say. Which means that some day, I will probably come back here and scratch my head, then just walk away confused. Lol.

      Thanks so much for joining in,

    Interesting about the convoluted verbiage…sometimes I feel like we as poets often do that. LOL. Not intentially, of course.
