Sunday 160 @ Monkey Man

Sesquipedalians amalgamate
endeavoring alas to propagate
the logoi we use to elucidate
to one who can meditate, cogitate
upon the words we do so venerate

  2. Ugh! This is short – but very difficult! A lover of words!

  5. I have no idea what this means, there is a dictionary in my immediate future! Loved it anyway, the rhythm jumps out and grabs you.

    Regards…

  6. Thesaurus.com is an amazing tool. Great 160 in all is 25 cent word splendor. Thanks for playing and have an anomolous Sunday.

    • Sir, if you think that I used Thesaurus.com, you are sorely mistaken! Merriam-Webster for me! 🙂
      Thanks for reading.

  7. That’s a mouthful! It’s like the opposite of zen.

    The rhymes were awesome!! 🙂 Great 160 !

    • Thank you, Kavita. I take your comments to heart. I’m very glad you like it. 🙂

      The ten syllable lines were the hardest part.

  9. Long words, not necessarily long winded . . . often accurate . . . fine poem. You must have had to work to get the rhythm and rhyme . . . just the way we often work (perhaps not often enough) to get just the right word. What a good job!

    • Thanks, Jamie 🙂 The words were the easy part…the R and R were truly difficult for me to get into 160 characters, but fun in the end. Thank you so much for the comment and your time.
