NaPoWriMo – Day 10

“Today I challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you’d prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.”

A barrener challenge dryly enfetters.

For gift here in jambing kaleidoscope letters,

Merged neatly on placement; queerly rows shown;

To understand very well xeric your zone!

(In a spirit of sheer sadism, I’m not going to define ‘xeric’ for you!)

This has kept me busy yesterday and today - an extension to the fence giving some privacy after a massive and massively destructive and messy tree was cut down.

This has kept me busy yesterday and today – the beginnings of an extension to the ‘cottage’ fence giving some privacy after a massive and massively destructive and messy tree and some wall-undermining strelitzias  had to be cut down.

    I’d be very sceptical to climb that ladder…

    xeric..a weird word in everyway
    but seems to be ‘the word’ today
    first used in 1926
    in the time of silent flicks
    but now it causes much perplextion\
    often used in wrong direction
    but it is a silly word I say
    and will not write it again today

    I knew xEric, he was at school with me!


  4. vuurklip says:

    xEric – our former gerdener Eric …


  5. I thought xeric was an adjective…………..


  6. Excellent job! I’m quite impressed. And you won’t stump me with xeric! We are in the middle of a four-year mega-drought. I know ALL accompanying words by now, I would think! 🙂

    A good 14 Scrabble points for your “dry”sense of humour 🙂
