    Good Grief

    Greater-goodness ghoulishly groans, 'g r a s s i u s'. Generally gentlemanly, Gunter's Graveyard greets guests, gesturing goodwill.
    Ghosts give goodbyes, greetings, goodnights...gratitude goes-round, given-out gracefully.
    Geists granting glimpses give gaunt gestures ghoulishly. Grim-Reaper goes galloping, greivous gallantry glares grimacingly.
    Golems grin great glowing greenish grandeur. Gushing geiser's grumble gives-in; Graveyard Grand-Tour.

    Guinevere graces God's glistening gardens. Glass-like garb glitters, glowing gowns gleam Godesses greatness. Galaxies give-way.
    Guinevere's garments glorify Galactica's greatest gift: gems generously glimmering geomantic genius.
    Gallant gesture, girl. Gallant...
    Gatherers group, giggling. Grovelling gentlemen gasp, 'Greetings, Great Goddess...'

    Grounded gemstones germinate golden grapes gloating gob-stopping girth...
    God's giving generates generations generating generations...guess-work goes-on, geometric guidelines guide growth.
    Gatekeeper Gharagorne grittingly grinds gears, granting Ghangis' guards gateway.
    Ghost-land Gargoyles growl. Ghastly gazes grip goers-by. Gutless-wonders get goosebumps.

    Gerbera's gentle glow... grains gently grow, generously gorgeous gails groom God's greatest garden-show.
    Grape-vineyard's gallow-born geese greet galloping gusts gliding, going-with.
    Glancing guides gliding geese-groups, generally gauging graze-worthy grasslands (green/greener/greenest)
    Ghostly ghouls give going guests goodbye groans. Graveyard grand-finale...'G o o d b y e, g o o d m e n. G o o d l u c k'

    I wrote that a few weeks ago so it's had a lot of patching up.... I couldn't stop editing it, was driving me nuts!

    You really tick all the boxes with these, YesNo, that is remarkable imo.
    It doesn't even appear to be restricted by constraints at all (as most of yours), but I do like this one a lot. I bet you didn't even try! Haha, which is usually the case.

    BTW, thanks, you lifted my game!

    Thanks, slipee! These are entertaining. I'm amazed how long the one's you write are. I'm lucky to get 4 short lines worth.

    Now waiting for someone to write H.

    Oh mine are only long if they aren't structured like a poem, but more like a short story.
    Keeping it in rhyme and syllabic as well is a lot harder, 4 lines are about all I can do like that with some sort of quality and consistency. The longer ones I have done don't quite fit, although the D one I did was a fluke I think. Some letters are easier, too. I didn't even attempt it until i read yours covering all grounds, and Cacian as well.

    That last one I worked on for a long time, I'd occasionally read it and make adjustments. But it's not a poem really... and there are a lot of hyphens. I like doing it is why I put in the effort. I fear writer's block if I don't have boundaries.

    You will notice I will probably only appear in this sub-forum because there are criteria to remain within the boundaries of, to which I enjoy pushing the boundaries. In a completely open playing field I just have no ..... direction? Without rules to push I stand still!

    I like the rules as well. My main problem is having some coherent message.

    Here's one for H. I'm not sure what it means.


    Healthy, happy harmony,
    Her heavenly, hopeful hands,
    Humongous high hilarity
    Healed heartbroken Hildebrand.

    It sounds to me like Hildebrand looked at the brighter side of life or some ironic humour in her misfortune which had left her with a broken heart. And that she is a creator or course, a quirky one, hilariously unorthodox most probably.

    Implying it insinuates
    I'm itchiness, I irritate
    I'm immature, I inscribe
    insultingly I'll improvise

    inevitable, inconclusive
    I'm incredibly intrusive
    information, illustrations
    interloped imaginations

    Intel imposed intervention
    I'm insisting ill intentions
    I'm incognito, in illusion
    incriminating institution

    Investigation implicating
    interrogation, instigating -
    Irrelevance, it is important
    in intellect it's insubordinate

    Keep killing kings
    Kind kids kick kitchens
    Knees knit knickers
    Kangaroo's kanji kabbalah
    Keen kayaking kebabs
    Kneeling knobbly knives
    Kidnapped kingfisher keeps kingdom
    Ketchup keyboard kaput!

    Its more a colelction of vaguely amusing nonsense sentences than a structured poem, but hey, its not as if the dictionary is overflowing with words beginning with k.
