wow, that's stunning! I don't know which challenge this. I like the word challenges best. But I'll have to go back and poke around the Trifecta site some more...
There's still time! You just have to write a poem - EITHER 33 words, 3 lines, or 3 stanzas!
Another fantastic writing :) great job Lib
You are too kind :)
How gloriously visual this piece is! Love the line: Gilded trunks of elephantata.Excellent writing.
Diane - Thank you so much! I had so much fun writing this!
i love your use of words! it made for a delightful read
Thank you, Renada. So, nice of you to come by and comment :)
I loved the bright imagery and genuine humor in places, like "Gilded trunks of elephantata."
LOL! Thanks, Jes... I had fun with this one ;)
A short, descriptive mouthful. Bright, bold, unique. Nicely done.Came from Trifextra.
Thanks, Kim! Appreciate that!
Very creative, and amazingly descriptive.
Thanks so much, Tara!
It is done so beautifully. The occasion comes alive with your description.
Thank you so much, Ruby!!
Loved the bit about the elephantata. If that isn't a word, it should be. :)
"elephantata"? Oh heck yes, this is refreshing and wonderful.
I had a smile on my face the whole time I was writing this. I think I want to do more poetry - its kind of a riot :)
Your choice of words is fantastic. Honestly, I felt like I was reading one of the many poems I was assigned to read while in school. Great rhythm.
Thanks! I was consciously trying to channel Kipling and Coleridge and do kind of a mash up - LOL!
Libby, THIS. IS. GRAND!You're the best word inventerer ever!Elephantata.Hakuna matata!
Cipriano! Thanks a million for coming by and commenting! I want to do more of this, and I am glad for the feedback :)Thanks again - you going to have time to enter, do you think?
Yep, I just did a while ago.All the best to you.
This whole section makes me smile:"Yellow, orange, green and flaming pink.Pushes its bearers to the brink.Deities, icons, inamorata.Gilded trunks of elephantata."
I'm so glad you like it! I think I am going to add to this at some point.
I can feel the energy and atmosphere of this poem. :-) ~Imelda
