    As a warning, this is an example of what can happen when you place a dictionary too close to a poet.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    The virago melted into
    redivivus sussuration

      Uh, well. I don't think this was your best...but it made me smirk a little at the fact that you used a dictionary and random words. Or were they random? Did you just turn to spontaneous spots or what? I want to know; maybe I'll try that sometime!

    So why did you decide to do this? I kind of stumbled a little bit, and if I didn't know a word I had to look at the bottom. Then I had to shove the meaning in there in place of the actual word and it screwed me up. Big time. -_-'

    Anyway...methinks I shall be goinck now...

      I must admit I do glance through the dictionary if i'm stuck for something to do, language is just amazing, I mean who thinks that we need these words, it's crazy.
    As it happen I've used ineffable in a piece that I'm still working on so I was sorted there, but the rest were new to me, ebullient being my favourite. I shall strive to work that in somewhere.

    Nicely done thanks.

      Well, I love new words, so I'll give it a go since you've provided the "word-meanings" for me already. This should be fun

    The courageous woman melted into
    restored whisperings
    then glided into
    high-spirited radiance
    due to complete
    but unexpressible

    Well, that's my take. I enjoyed this.

    Thanks for the intrique this morning.

    Nicely done!

      Wow, I must look every single word up as a challange! I am not sure what you meant, and I am pretty certain it has to do with love. Your warning was hillarious! Cool... now I have something to do this morning!

      That was just odd. I made me laugh at how...pretentious it was. I think any one of those words could be used to greatly enrich a piece, but the combination of them just gives one a headache. The dictionary is a powerful weapon, and can only be combated with a great supply of pain relieving drugs.

    Either that or a very sudden trip to the lavatory. Though, this poem was very Mawkish, I'll admit. It was sickening. In fact, I feel ill now. No seriously, I think I need to go lie down... -_-

    Anyhow...that was weird.

    Rock on,
