    Love the new words: "uxy" pronounced ūks'-y or ŭks-y or üks-y or other ? Even μks-y (for micro poem ?)

    "Metusallic" would be my preference; after googling a bit came up with this to support my reasoning... https://www.afrikaiswoke.com/the-tre...ter-explained/
    The Process of Creation that results in Conscious Existence and Objects working in Harmony within the Physical plane thus consists of a series of specific Sounds or Vibrations made into the Primordial Energy/Matter or Nun.

    Creation progresses with each Vibrration (sic) to build the various planes which eventually make up the Manifestation we call Objective Physical Reality and the Subjective Conscious Identities within it represented in the form of a Tree diagram with 10 Nodes known as the Tree of Life.
    ... adds a bit of mystique to the etymology of your new word; with a side reference to Methuselah

    ROFL... I found them about a week ago by googling (nothing ventured, nothing gained). While the results that come out are sometimes lame and nonsensical (which is good for a nonsense poem I guess); the results are also repetitiously lame. BUT, the the structure is there in the Poem Generators for some poetic forms (I've used the Freeform, Villanelle, and Sonnet, and even the Haiku forms in concert with a Poem Editor website which has a medium weight thesaurus and medium weight rhyme generator). SO, for a poem to be more original and more to artistic taste one can't rely on the Poem Generator IMHO to deliver a polished piece; hence the copious editing... which is now easier after copy/paste into the Poem Editor because the format (and perhaps a prompt) is there to build on as a lattice to get that polished piece one desires. I'll leave the links below for you to check out, with a bonus link ... hoping they are available to you.

    Swallows a car or two
    High commotion!
    Honk, honk, honk
    goes the immense queue on
    the blocked road.
    Rescue efforts are rewarded
    Three people are flown to the hospital.
    Lastly emerges a fireman
    Carrying a small fluffy dog.

    The Hole lords immensely about the roaring, desperate traffic.
    Love "The Hole" !!! A vignette of a puff news piece one sees in the newsies (not my word AND not the musical). On yesterday's news a dog trapped in a water canal in L.A. that seemed to go on forever on one of the newsies... https://abc7.com/los-angeles-la-rive...ters/11688157/

    Almost forgot the roof... Several attempts to fix the roof with no joy. We live in a 40 year old... make that 50 years old !!! (350 dog years) double-wide manufactured home which is crumbling even as I type... but, it is paid for and just may last until my wife and I pass on, as long as we don't have any more earthquakes or fires or...

    re: Yes, The idea is from the news. Heavy rain and (i suppose) bad asphalt is opening big craters in several roads. The dog rescue was in another city, Petropolis (where our imperial families of the 19 C used to spend their holidays. The rescue was remarcable because the little dog was the same color of the debris around him. They were going to close the crater when they noticed something moving in it.

    In spite of the situation, I had to laugh at your video. It looks more like an swimming contest between dog and rescuer.

    As for your roof: manufactured means that it is a wooden house? I think, the main problem is that in winter it must get very cold with that hole. Donīt you have neighbors that could help you there?

    You had me there with "uxy": I guess it should be "uksy" in English, but because of interference of other languages the "u" is like the English "o" as in "do" or "who". Anyway, I think the good thing with nonsense words is that they follow no rules (:.

    Lol. As for "Metusallic", enjoyed the mystique and I also prefer these form. Itīs more simple.

    This is Taffy Doodles? Why he looks ten years younger than he is! He is cute and seems to be be in good health!

    The old cat

    Sometimes

    When I close my eyes

    I see a small kitten

    Itīs black and white.

    When I open my eyes it disappears.

    Is that cat me?

    Is it someone else?

    I canīt tell!


    Another day

    A mouse crossed my path!

    I let it go,

    I've become so lazy...

    But I still enjoy my food

    And the sound of loving voices

    And gentle caresses.


    But most of all

    I like to slumber,

    And to sleep.

    Sleeping

    But Iīm not drifting away.

    Not yet. Why should I

    My old catīs life

    Is so confy and easy

    The eternal planes

    Are unknown

    So I stay on!

    Beautiful poem !

    Borealis - A Nonsensical Villanelle


    Borealis - tell me about the breeze
    the wind sometimes blustering most crazily
    forever riffling the leaves in the trees

    The flight and fancies of harlequin bees
    sometimes focus on the flowers of the daffodilly
    Borealis - tell me about the breeze

    Borealis took delight in bedeviling the seas
    becalming them till ships became stilly
    forever riffling the leaves in the trees

    Sirocco tried to distract him with jangling keys
    judging Borealis had become much too silly
    Borealis - tell me about the breeze

    Borealis took action like an inopportune sneeze
    likened to wrestling a drunken hillibilly
    forever riffling the leaves in the trees

    Thus, Borealis labored - was never at ease
    tending his web like the lace of Chantilly
    Borealis - tell me about the breeze
    forever riffling the leaves in the trees

    Specially liked the rhythm of the poem! Still learning to use the generator.
