    Lightbulb The Alphabetical Poetry Contest

    Litnet poets from far and near!

    The alphabetic sentence game has brought to light some interesting pieces of poetry.

    The idea is to start, albeit timidly, a contest similar to the old poetry contest, long abandoned.

    The difference is that, like in the alphabetical sentence game, the words of the poem have to obey the alphabetical sequence.

    The winner wins the right to start the next round.

    The theme of the warming up round is free. And the deadline is July 25th.

    binary context

    origins parse questioning realities

    so too unphased vast WIMPs xor'd

    your zone applies binary context

    digitalizing every force graviton

    A legit garden poem. (Prolly are going to be without internet later, wall with PC sockets is going to be repainted.)

    Alphabetical ramble
    "X" the stranger
    "Y" opens itīs arms
    to sleepy "ZZZ"
    and so we are back to "A".
