napowrimo # 27

Carolee proposed an acrostic for this prompt - a word that relates to oneself.  Fun!

Acrostic Me

Pondering palpable pulchritude, preternatural palaver, posing prestidigitation, possibly
Opposing obstreperous obloquies, obvious oxymoron, obnoxious ordinariness, otherwise
Enthusiastic, even ebullient every enjambment, evocative elision, elegantly eviscerated elegy,
Tantalizing tercet, timbered tone, trochee true to theme, terribly tempting tall tale tellingly told.

  1. I only wish I were talented enough to reply in kind, Wanda!

  2. Thanks, Derrick - but, pooh! Doesn't take talent - and you have plenty of that. Takes - what? - a dictionary! Acually - it's my job - I'm an AP English teacher and I've got them all reviewing for the big exam May 6 - so these words are all in our heads these days.

  3. Wanda, the range of understanding shown here diminishes us all! If this is how you limber up to a challenging prompt? Your opus is worth waiting for!

  4. Thank you, all. An experiment is always such fun!
