    Sadly the Nonsense poetry thread, a new thread, nor my blog will allow posts as of earlier today saying banned. I've PM'd Logos and have not received a reply yet. I'm currently on my Kindle and it's a bit wonky to test... But I was pleasantly surprised that the Lol poetry thread worked and I was allowed to post

    I'll respond to the Alphabet poem thread when I get back home on my laptop... Again my Kindle and cellphone are limited as you well know

    Thanx for enjoying my poem

    Ok, tailor, there is no hurry at all. Seems you are selectively banned: Littnet doesn´t mind you writing in prose, neither you posting poems in certain threads, If you post nonsense poems in the lol thread it might be a solution, but you might get banned. When you have leisure and internet enough maybe you could try to post a nonsense poem on some old Litnet thread no one writes on anymore. If it works , it may become the new nonsense thread.

    The Power of Music
    A choir sang on a lofty landscape.
    Suddenly someone cried out:
    "There are snakes lots of them
    tumbling down the rocks."

    Quickly the snakes organized themselves
    in a bunch
    for listening to the music.

    So the humans sang
    the snakes listened
    And
    the course of history was altered.

    Next: trim, mushroom, frontiers, piglets, enterprise, banter.

    Enjoyed!... "tumbling down the rocks." music loving snakes

    Challenge: trim, mushroom, frontiers, piglets, enterprise, banter

    appetites

    out in the frontiers
    beyond the reach of kings
    I heard piglets pitter, patter,
    pitter, patter -
    their enterprise a joyful banter:
    "mushrooms! mushrooms!
    ... cabbages and taters!
    dinner fit for piggies,
    with all the trimmings"
    and I smiled to myself over
    their piggy innocence as I
    casually banked behind a cloud
    spying from up on high for
    something a bit more boarish

    Next: moat, emotion, wizard, changeling, raven, piccolo

    Scenario

    What can one do with a moat, a wizard, a changeling, a raven and a piccolo?
    I will have to employ the service of the wizard,
    to put a moat around a water castle, like the fortified ones
    of Münster.
    The changeling might be more difficult,
    if the wizard himself weren´t one,
    left as a child in said castle, with
    the moat about it.
    To find a raven is no problem,
    if he agrees to be installed on the top of the castle, with
    the moat about it.
    Out of nowhere a youngster, full of
    wanderlust ( but that´s from another list)
    takes out his piccolo and starts to play.
    Behold my emotion at seeing
    the complete picture.

    Now the story can begin.

    Reference:https://germangirlinamerica.com/wate...e-munsterland/
    Some of these castles I visited long ago.

    Next: ambush, gangsters, police car, sunset, ambar, headlong.

    Challenge: ambush, gangsters, police car, sunset, ambar tree, headlong

    "What is Guido's Rospigliosi Aurora but a morning thought, as the horses in it are only a morning cloud." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    painted with the broad brush of God

    unforeseen aurora of charged rarified air
    ambush the senses quite unlike prohibition
    gangsters with uncased spurious stradivaris
    setting upon police cars then sent careening
    headlong into a copse of liquidambars -
    streetwise observers look for meaning

    Enjoyed the poem, specially the presence of stradivaris instead of arms. The word tree somehow crept into the selection.

    Next: change, clowns, time, slide, mandolin, voices.

    Nostalgia

    Time slides forward and back
    Remembrance of things past
    Pictures, slides, videos, films
    sounds
    voices
    the laughter of clowns
    the soft patting of animals
    the insistent sound of a mandolin (Clarice Lispector)
    what more?

    CHANGES!

    Next: velvet, anxious, automatic, aromatic, entranced, transfer.

    Challenge: velvet, anxious, automatic, aromatic, entranced, transfer

    Anticipating Christmas 2024

    Anxious furtive velvet antlers stir
    - nostrils snort jets of fog
    an aromatic musk pervades
    as a hidden automatic transfer case
    allows Santa to smoothly shift
    between gears and reindeer bringing
    them up to speed, and away! - and elves
    rejoiced once more while others
    entranced simply stare into space -
    All hail the Prince of Peace!...
    it's almost Christmas Day!!!

    Sorry, tailor,I thought I had accepted the Challenge!

    Controversial theme for me, took me some time.

    Next: Independence Day, fireworks, children, gifts, festoon, statue

    Independence Day

    I dream of a day
    when my country will be
    truly independent:
    free of corruption,
    of mismanagement,
    of poverty, homelessness,illiteracy,
    free from its colonial inheritance
    free from debts
    free from looking up at richer countries
    free from its "street dog" complex
    which celebrates the foreign but
    despises all that is national
    (excepting football and carnival).


    If that day arrives,
    one can allow for fireworks,
    for inviting festoons
    for inumerous little flags
    in green, yellow and blue.
    People will echange gifts.
    The children will dance round D. Pedros statue,
    who, awoken to life
    will once more
    rise his sword and proclaim:
    "Independence or death".

    Next: delirious, fantastic, Northpool, snow, cheerful, mermaid
    "I seemed to have sensed also from an early age that some of my experiences as a reader would change me more as a person than would many an event in the world where I sat and read. "

    Somber poem... enjoyed I chose the theme because I have one to do also for our July 4th.

    Challenge: delirious, fantastic, Northpool, snow, cheerful, mermaid

    Northpool is a graciously cheerful town

    Northpool is a graciously cheerful town
    in a parallel dimension of little renown
    with fantastic mermaids and dour mermen
    who linger in its harbor again and again -
    unless imposed upon with heavy snows
    whereby they become the delirious foes
    of Brobdingnagian winged sea butterflies
    who terrorize all denizens of sea and skies
    yet bother not the good Northpool townfolks
    whom they consider their bosom birds 'n blokes

    7/2/2024

    Next: penumbra, moonflower, broach, silvan, radiance, raiment

    Good theme, tailor! But I think here and there the vibe at present is more for praying than for celebrating.
    Challenge accepted!

    Next: penumbra, moonflower, broach, silvan, radiance, raiment

    Moonflower
    Silvan penumbra
    Mild radiance
    Tender flower
    clad in white radiance,
    brooch no broach
    in the moonlit night.

    Next: Edelweiss, mountains, summit, current, song, dance.

    Beautiful Poem !

    Challenge accepted !

    Challenge: Edelweiss, mountains, summit, current, song, dance

    Dawn Wind / Auroral Dances

    When a lowly mountain's summit shimmers
    under fiery auroræ during a full moon færies
    dance amidst the Edelweiss and fireflies to
    the celestial sounds of music that emanate
    from the starry Pleiades - songs of eternity
    and love that course through the æthereal
    currents of space connecting intelligences -
    inspired by choirs who extol the grand Creator

    7/10/2024
