perfectly plastered



plethora of prickly,
pompous people
prevaricate

procastination
psyches me out

porous plaster
pedantically pours over
parallel lines

I push the plate of peas
placing it primly on paper

purple nail paint
prominantly displayed
on pampered fingers

You did a great job with those impossible words! (They were tricky, weren't they?)

Just someone said...

That is awesome! Wonderful use of the words!:) Just great...

I tried to come up with something with all those words, but for now have given up due to time constraints :)

lance said...

The poem is perfectly written. In a short phrases, it express many things. Kudos!!!

Donn said...

Perhaps it would be possible to preempt your poem's predicament to pontificate on the plebian pleasure of onomatopoeia by prescribing a precursive, peaceful and parsimonious path to Prema Sai or a plate of Primavera...
please :)

Difficult words nicely handled.

Hi Gautami,

Producing a potpourri of poems with the words peppered through, is great!

Such rich images. Love the purple painted nails the best... and I can see pursed lips, as well, perhaps with pomegranate lip potion placed upon them... lol.

I love the purple nail paint one, and how you handled parallelogram. You have such a nice touch, precise, and playful at once. I always like reading your work.

from Therese L. Broderick -- I like how this poem makes me equally aware of both the P consonants and all the vowels. I wasn't aware of all those similar vowels when I read the prompt list, focusing instead on just the consonants, but this poem draws my attention to the singing vowels: the long E in prickly and people and prevaricate, for ex. (and several other examples).

I get the vision of a boring dinner party with a bunch of drunks who think they're fabulously philosophical when inebriated. And you threw in a few p words of your own. Awesome.

Nice use of the words; I really like how the p sounds build some great consonance over the course of the poem.

Francis Scudellari said...

The simplicity of the lines builds some very compelling images that flow very nicely together.

I always enjoy the concise, direct energy of your poems. The pampered fingers with the purple nail paint were a vision. Thanks for sharing the well crafted work, Gautami. I enjoyed reading Donn's response too. =D

It's a party I'm glad to read and *not* attend! I'm with the POV, here!

what to do what to do what to do, perverting p word change into an accordion of pee-but-nonetheless-not-pee-sounding-words..You are my heroine, save me, save me from the insanity of my affinity for Sexy Tri-focals, I can beg

Well, there you have it, Sir Percy--THIS lady takes no offence at the "P" word!
