Pretty simple, actually.

Write a poem with more lines than adjectives.

The rules:

1) Freeverse is fine, but:

I love you for the
curvaceous,
        crystalline,
                   cerulean,
                           strong,
                                 and silent
bottle of Tidy Bowl that you are
... etc

is unacceptable.  Lines will be preferably longer than one word.  :p

2) Give it a real shot; don't give me a 4-line quip because that's all you can manage without extraneous verbiage flitting about like chaff in the wind.


I have my doubts as to whether Chris can actually pull this one off, but it will be interesting to see him attempt it.

*Imagines Chris sitting at his desk, breaking pencils and punching holes in the wall because he has found the perfect line  -- 8 words, 6 adjectives ...*

heh.

Hey Christopher...LOL I am betting YOU can do this.....I KNOW you can.....

or lol you can try my challenge....it's much easier...


Lauren~


NO offense Skyfyre.....

I would rather have one breath of his hair,
one kiss of his mouth,
one touch of his hand
than an eternity without it.

"extraneous verbiage flitting about like chaff in the wind."

Damn. Ouch. That smarts!

I have missed Linda! *chuckle* as I make mental note to check my OWN extraneous verbiage at the forum door...

Bah.  I ain't buyin' it.  You know you love me.  =p

Who else would pick on you incessantly, dissect your work like a dead frog, chip and chop and wheedle away at your ego at a vain attempt to keep it a manageable size ... and still be welcome at your house??

Well, OK, I know you only wanted to see Michael, but I was still there, and you didn't make me sleep in the car.  

Good luck with this one!
