sister wordles 6/3/09 6/1/09

I am fascinated by this little program called Wordle which takes words that you feed it (or a website address) and creates an image out of a specified number of those words. The bigger the word, the more times it has been used. It's an intriguing glimpse into the mind (and soul, perhaps) of the writer.

I look at the words of these two writers: my sister and myself. What is important to each of us in this given moment in time? What words do we share? What is the general tone of our words?
I feel that I can learn something from these images...but what, exactly? My sister uses vast, time, universe, lost, struggle, body, moment, water, creature, feeling, exist. I use house, found, owl, space, time, turtle, wander, sitting, love.

There are poems to be found here.
