Words are like plural nouns, they fill
all the adjective, plural nouns
and verb reality.
And the verdant trees, and humid air,
and charcoal clouds
are all adjective plural nouns.
I stand in the wilderness
of my backyard,
unkempt, weedy, and small,
and I am an adjective noun.
I inhale nouns, I verb nouns,
person in room verbs adverbly,
pronoun verbs article adjective noun,
conjunction article noun, conjunction
I inhale, and now is smothered in nouns.
I exhale, and verbs saturate now.
I breathe, and I breathe, and now is now
and I breathe and now is I
and breathe is I is now
is I is breathe is now
is I is now
Today’s prompt: “Make a puzzle or something using the pieces of a puzzle.” I was pretty pleased with this prompt. A puzzle! Julian used Jumble for Buddha #100, and I LOVED it. And I thought, ah, a word puzzle! Which led me to Mad Libs, which isn’t really a puzzle but a game, and which then morphed into this poem. So, my puzzle isn’t a puzzle. Or, I suppose more accurately, my puzzle is a puzzle that isn’t a puzzle. Or, maybe I just like saying “puzzle,” which is a pretty great word. All are correct, really. 😉
