Aureate Florid Resplendent *

Expanding the vocabulary is a lofty goal,
but, please allow me to do that my way.

What is proven by using strange new
words in poetry that muck up its intent?

What does it prove that a wordmaster
garbles a message with the highfalutin?

Hey, I'm not envious since dictionaries
offer thousands of uncommon selections.

Poets are free to write anything, owing
their readers poems of understanding.

EXCELLENT, Bill, why use highfalutin' words when they're not necessary to impress? Although we should stretch our minds...I like this one.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

You know how I feel about this... I was just told in an acceptance email from a literary magazine that it was nice to read poetry of simplicity that could still be intriguing.. I thought woohooo...)))

Opening us to life's mysteries makes for a remarkable life. This is one of the great benefits of reading and writing and understanding that which we may not generally encounter in every day life.

God bless you. Kathy
