Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Words Count With Mama Zen

A three-ring circus!

Is your life a circus?  If so, which circus performer are you?  Tell me about your act . . . in 90 words or less.

If your life is NOT a circus, by all means share how you've managed to pull that off . . . and take as many words as you like!

I may be a few clowns short of a circus, but I am in!

That quote hits me hard this morning. It's unfortunate that I only have the first part down!

Haha! Right now I feel like the ringmaster of a three-ring circus of monkeys!

Susan said...

Speaking of rings and clowns ... how could I resist? Thanks, Mama Zen, et al.

I love it when the word limit arrives just when I'm ready for the poem to end.

Thank you Mama Zen for the inspiration! :)

90 for you just slightly off theme!

Gail said...

Didn't make it to ninety but chose the "less"

Thank you for these fun prompts.

I'm dropping my plates all the time. I'll be back to play.

I'm late, but I made it to the circus.

No time for poetry right now ~ barely time to read yours and tell you how much I enjoyed them!
