Wordplay #5  Ecbolic

ec-bol-ic > promoting labor by increasing uterine contractions.

Days when wallowing in melancholic throws
of repetitive revision, the poet yearns
for ecbolic tincture that would quicken
delivery from her Muse.

    I love your piece, Elizabeth, and if that tincture becomes available, I’m in!
    I combined ecbolic with the Writer’s Island prompt. That post is here:
    Thanks for these words. It will keep me going. They are a bit of a tincture themselves!

    I agree, the word tincture came out of ecbolic somehow. New words, new avenues of thought. Like that a lot. And really liked how you made the word work for you and your delightful poem,
