Poetry's Unconstrained Depths

It's rather difficult to define this art-form without listing examples of its many dimensions in metered expression. Sonnets, haikus, couplets among many other specifically rhythmic assemblies of words are conjured to the mind when the word is mentioned. However, poetry can include art of any form, even sans words, depending on the eye (or perhaps ear) of the beholder. One might find it in the motions of a ballet, or the quiet sounds of nature when watching the stars. The word can be applied as a synonym for art, and often is. Whether you enjoy the structure of an Italian sonnet, or the freedom of imagery-filled prose, poetry can be found anywhere by those who recognize its descriptive, emotive, grace in the undeniable internal reaction it elicits.

Rhyming challenge! write a silly poem, rhyming one or all of the following words: hippopotamus, yeti, giraffe, capsule, abominable, frolicsome.
Written by twistofrhyme

Knot to Laugh

The frolicsome hippopotamus

Danced with the giraffe for us

Through the capsule which held time

Twirling actions into rhyme

The abominable snowman huffed

Melting layers, dried, and fluffed

To the silly melody

'Til a wee yeti grinned at me

When they were through, we had to laugh

At the gangly, young giraffe

Knotting that long neck of hers

As she tumbled down the stairs

The happy hippo was prepared

For his friend to need repair

And frolicked quickly through the capsule

To collect his giraffe-knot-tool

Slapstick ensued - nothing witty

But enough for the small yeti

To giggle herself into a bubble

So far from abominable

That she joined in the silly fun

Henceforth proving frolicsome

Yet another "short but sweet" : look around wherever you are and pick out an object. Write something funny about it. entertain yourself in your mundane or strange surroundings. (don't cheat!.. or do. we wouldn't know.) The catch: you only have 15 words to draw your reader in.

The Mirror Paradox

The surface reveals the contents of the entire universe, infinite depths,  yet remains completely superficial.

Taps

I watched his little body twitch with each discharge of the seven rifles, though his hand did not waver from its salute. The bugle, in perfect pitch, sang the memory of that demanding uniform to rest while the cloth was folded with precision. No four-year-old should have to accept that morbid triangle of honor in lieu of a parent, but there he was - so brave - your son. He held that flag so precious, as though it would someday bring you home. Looking at him today, sporting his dress-whites, at the same age you were then, I could almost think it did...

Disturb me in 50 words or fewer
Written by twistofrhyme

The Jiminy Project

Everything you say, do, see, hear, and think is being recorded. Secrets no longer stay between you and your cricket. You can't avoid it. The disturbing part is what you had been sure that you'd already gotten away with, before you found out that lying is futile...

The Science in the Spelling

You can halve your cake and eat it, too. Following this recipe, it'll last through any amount of sharing. Fruitcake somehow never gets smaller, regardless...

Word Play Time! Try to write a piece with every word starting with consecutive letters of the alphabet, like this: ("A Beastly Challenge, Don't Ewe Find? ") Miss-spelling allowed, as long as it makes readable sense. I wonder if anyone can make it through the whole alphabet with a coherent story?
Written by twistofrhyme

Francis Learns the Alphabet

A brazen, craven dream enticed Francis: "Goodness! 'Has innocent Juliet known lust,' my nymph? Oh, princess..." quoted Romeo suggestively, teasingly, undertaking very wicked x-ratings. "Your zingers are brilliant, cutey."

Driving, encouraging fingers gyrated her, involving juicy kisses. Lingering, miniscule nibbles over persistently quivering ribs, slowly tantalized undulating, virginal wonders. Xiphoid yearning zenithed and brought carnal, delicious ecstasy. Francis gained her internal jubilant kinaesthesia, learning muscle-tension no other passion's questing, rubbing, sinful torment understood. Visions, wherein xenomanic, young zains awakened breathtaking curiosity, delivering enigmatic feelings, guided her. Insistently, joltingly kinetic lips meandered nearby orgasmic, pulsing, quickening, riveting, sensitive, tingling, unmentionable venues with xylocarpous, ywis zealous, albeit blissful consequences. Delight engulfed fully, grinding his intense, jumping, keen luck. Man never orchestrated pleasure quite right since then.

Write automatically and describe who you really are, without referencing your physical appearance, job, traits, ethics, possessions, achievements, beliefs or environment. And good luck with that ;)
Written by twistofrhyme

Just Another Memory

An image

A look

An experience

A thought

Recorded, but distorted in the lifetime of ever-changing perception

The silence that watches you from between everything you were ever told

That wondering, wandering doubt that nips incessantly at the subconscious slumber of your conscience with mirrored eyes

Speculating what is Truth

I am to you as you are to me:

The story of a life

Which may gain substance in yours

Or not

Tell us about THE book, story, or poem that changed your life. The one that brought you to love words.
Written by twistofrhyme

Not as Slow as Thorough

I cannot remember the title. It was probably something along the lines of "teach yourself to draw in 30 minutes". Not everyone has that talent. Perhaps I'm just a bloody slow learner. That book, randomly picked off the shelf in the library while perusing the different levels of depth and detail of graphic novel illustration, made me realize that words would have to be my pallette. Several years of observational description and metaphor tinkering later, I am now able to manage some passable pencil sketches as well. Language, however, in its spectrum of imaginative expression remains my go-to paint. That book did not allow for slow learners with hands more used to exploring human anatomy than holding a pencil directed in coordination with the physical eye...

Also, Shakespeare, because, well, SHAKESPEARE! Though the Bard truly made English a torment to master, I just have to admire that devious gift.
