    Nonsensical Poetry

    Many times I find myself writing poetry for the sake of words rather then sense. I do it irrespective of grammar syntasx of word formation. There is a feeling of liberation and well being everytime I do so. I like words and sounds so I sacrifice sense for the sake of writing and enjoying the flavours of words and their shapes.
    If words were a toy I sure would make games out of them and enjoy every seconds of it.
    So I though we could all post our nonsense poetry here for the fun of it.
    So the only rule or non rules is: This a grammar syntax and sense free poetry in other words let words float freely.
    Thanks for participating !!


    Here is my first one to kick off:

    liberating
    the world of poetry
    let it be forever
    for writing is endeavour


    my second one:

    my imagination
    finds
    when I am wild
    a sense of fire
    inside desire
    which solves
    disolves
    only to pire
    a new enquire

    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    I don't think I am able to imitate you, cacian, but here's something to encourage others to try:

    Nodding nonsense necessitates
    All red roses red.
    All red roses yellow, too,
    Nearly nothing new.
    Mindless sunsets meditate.
    Skies nod pink and blue.
    Darkness nodding hesitates.
    Nothing now to do.

    Nobody can compete with Cacian!

    I cannot be a bot
    or even a sot
    trying or dying
    shoelaces tying
    up puddling lines
    of loose laces
    which huddle
    and buddle
    together softly
    more croftly
    in feathers

    great read Delta40

    the summary of life
    is light
    darkness derives
    a power bite
    delivers instant
    lulabbies
    to sooth the hidden
    silent nights
    and sunshine flutters
    sweet alrights
    to synchronise
    the morning whites
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    At the Summit Meeting

    —for Eric Cantor

    We had two
    Alsatian Buckhorn bedimmed,
    emphasized grumble-colloquia
    and the marvelous results.

    The boys must be blind,
    to the perfection of the arrangements,
    shamefaced Cinderellas from Cinerama,
    oblivious to simple disco parapsychology.

    It seems to overlook such a labile—
    some pipes and five pounds of smoking tobacco—
    assure or estimate that the congress
    dictate proper replacements.

    tents, and we were fireflies
    in cravaneted jars
    strung together and canned—
    but I hated sardines,
    too much salt, kills the snail—
    ears,
    epic nights,
    between the faces of light,
    neither black nor morning,
    imagining the sky was below us
    like grains of sand,
    our flashlights illuminating nothing

    One Point Boundlessness

    Omnipresent,
    Laughing, pleasant
    One-point universe
    Vast expanses
    Light enhances
    Boundlessly though terse

    the world to culck
    music and folk

    the moon landing

    aliens standing
    wishful fencing
    was what was
    mending.

    and see it exhibit
    a shape inhibit

    Miaow, Miaow,
    I miaowed to a cat,
    she looked at me with scorn
    as silently she sat.

    the perfect gentleman
    he knows
    the perfect stunt
    to manier a pun
    he has the
    perfect
    look
    the smile
    the language wit
    he packs all
    in his rift
    to travel
    when he trips
    to get a startler's
    gift
    and please his suiters fix
