Nonsense


Photo by L. Kolp


Do you see the pattern?
Doused with sprouts
of swirly fluff
~naughty words~
I've had enough!
They don't make sense,
no tense (some dense).
Overused, a pale
defense against
ShAtTeReD poems,
prolific forms
from whence; do you
get my drift?
 

Prompt inspirations:
3WW~ douse, naughty, pale

Arghh, for some who is colour blind your picture sent me cross-eyed. The poem is brilliant. A great combination.

Brian Miller said...

ha. your words are a swirl unto themselves....kinda like how form feels to me at times...smiles....

Mary said...

Ha, I especially like the swirly fluff covering the naughty words. Nice illogical logic here. Smiles.

typewriterpoet said...

i get your drift! this made me smile, loved it and all 3 prompts into it? well done!!!

Your form is fun to read... I tried it aloud really fast and rather slow. The effects were surprisingly different. And I totally agree with the foul language sentiment. Sometimes it's the only way to really convey. More often than not, an easy shock effect.

Gail said...

Yes, it makes sense to me. Well done.

Loved this art project (the photo and the poem make this a project).

Peggy said...

Love your idea of the swirl of words and also I like the photo. I am wondering where it was taken.

The best sense often comes out of non sense..

Great poem ... what a challenge combining three prompts! :)

Eva Gallant said...

There's definitely a connection between the poem and the photo! Nice!

The illustration was quite a test (yes, another color blind fool). I thought I would read it backwards as well and it was just as much fun. Then even better was to read every second line and then return back again. You played with us so I got hooked and became inventive.

Paige Nicole said...

Sherry Blue Sky said...

The photo is intriguing.....love "shattered poems, prolific forms". Right now I havent a word or a form to my name. Just sooooo tiiiiiired!

Love this, Laurie!

festivalking said...

Nice play of words

Myrna R. said...

Ha. I'm smiling 'cause I have such trouble with form. Well, not trouble really, I'm just too lazy to try any fluffy form. Your poem - not fluffy at all, just fun. Thanks Laurie.

SaraV said...

Definitely get your drift :-) You had patterns in the photo and your words. Wonderful
