perching on the surface
shaking blue grit
from a slice of root
The words provided by M (aka Grapeling) for today's prompt at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads were: propel fury tender curious surface growl pace shrill aunt slice grit blue factor shake perch root still wend urge typical
We were urged to "avoid punctuation, to cross up usage, using verbs as nouns, for example, rather than using adjectives (oops), to try not to sound contrived or forced despite the fact that poetry is specifically contrived to contravene 'normal' speech."
I hope I have mixed it up sufficiently. I admit I made slight changes to some of the words: shrilly, apace, shaking, etc.
