It's a wonderful list. In fact, it's so wonderful that I was tempted to take the words just as she listed them, to use them in the order they appeared. Delightful fun to string the list, like a bowl of beads, into couplets:
sketch screen march snowberry
elder tawny bergamot meadow
(the first 8 words on the list)
shunning shallow thorns on sapling
leave twisted indigo adaptations
(the last 8 words on the list, with "on" added)
The other words in De's list of 20 were:
ivy stout-stemmed cluster zigzag
So, I did write a poem using many of the words, but I am not at all sure it can beat, or even measure up to, the original list.
bergamot, a balm for the bees,
the shallow roots of sapling trees,
the zigzag paths of passing deer
leave twisted routes for walking here.
shunning more familiar places
avoiding thorns that grab shoelaces
I stopped to sketch a meadow then
where ivy grew on trees stout-stemmed.
I started with bergamot (monarda, or bee balm) because I recall trying to grow it in a too-cold climate. It grew, and was lovely, but unable to over-winter.
The pictures here are the ones shown on De's prompt, apple and blossom, jack-in-the-pulpit, and trumpet vine, from The Book of Wildflowers which she found on ebay.
