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.

.............................................* flamboyant

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

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

...and hypochondriacs are affrighted of their flunking pathos, a poignancy that eventually will demolish the fabric of their wellness...
Oh boy!!! writing those words when one can be simpler...
Getting your point loud and clear.
