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

Image result for book of words

For a creative writing class, my offspring had to create a book of favorite words.  Knowing a good thing when I see it, I stole a few of them for this poetry prompt.

The Words:

mimicry
testament
rapture
cool
dachshund
cherubim
heretic
infinitesimal
convenient
serendipity

Your Assignment:

Chose three words from the above list and compose a little bit of brilliance of sixty words or less. Bonus points if you title your poem "Book of Words."

Have fun!

Ha, cool prompt. I coughed up a few quick words. Smiles. Was a nice antidote to the more distressing one I wrote just before it, full of wolves and the apocalypse!

Only just spotted this prompt (been busy away from computer). Once I had spotted it, how could I resist a book of words? *Smiles.*

Thanks for playing, guys! I've been traveling, so I'm a little behind on visits.
