alphabetical order

Slouching Mom (who got the idea from Sanne) challenged bloggers to write a 26-word poem, each word beginning with a consecutive letter of the alphabet. Here's mine:

All but children demand ease.
For griefs hymned in jagged keys
Leave men needing only peace.

Quarried rocks shall they upend
Veined with xes, yielding zen.

Well, it is not pee-stick poetry, but I still find it mighty impressive. I especially like your use of the word "x"es. Awesome.

Monica said...

Unreal. And it rhymes. I'm trying mine but I'm stuck on the X. Uggh..Hey, like the new pic at the top of the page. That's one of the Paris pics no?

This is pretty darn impressive, I must say. And the rhyming too, wow.

Manic Mommy said...

I yearned Zen. You yield.

There's a deeper meaning there, I think. Or a derth of Z words.

Very nicely done.

Kyla said...

Zen is a popular last word. I wonder if that means something.

Excellent poem.

Technically, you haven't asked anyone else to pitch in, but if Julia's doing it, considering the rules of my blog, I guess I'm next. Damn, though, it's going to take some doing.

I am in awe - lovely images - including the one on your header - given the context (especially the text below) it makes me think of a lake of tears.
Really lovely and evocative.

Monica and Elizabeth: thanks for the commentws on the header picture. Yes, it's one of the pictures that I took in Paris, the Seine viewed from a bridge near Notre Dame.
