Day Twenty-Seven– NanoPoblano – Poem/Poetry – “Earthy Eloquence” by David Ellis

Hey there all you cool cats and diggety dogs.

It’s my Day Twenty-Seven entry of NanoPoblano AKA National Blog Posting Month (but with a truckful bunch of spicy peppery peeps known as Cheer Peppers) and I’m back with another slice of poetic pie to chow down on.

I’ve worked on a very short form this time round, so have decided to forgo the usual Facebook performance video.

My inspiration for this particular piece was from the OctPoWriMo prompt for their Day 27 and the use of flowers. I wanted to write something both elegant and seductive.

I also took a mosey on back to Shadow Poetry and picked a nice, simple form called a 7/5 Trochee (the structure is 7/5/7/5 syllables across two stanzas) and you can look at in further detail regarding it’s structure/rules here:-

Shadow Poetry – A Poet’s Writing Resource – The 7/5 Trochee

Also, since I such a decent sort, here are some other alternative prompts to help you jam and boogie with your own poetry ups and downs:-

And finally here is my poem in written form, which is the only for you are getting, since there is no accompanying video but what a pretty sight it is 🙂

“Earthy Eloquence” by David Ellis

Rhombic roots rotate rosettes
Velvety vessels
Full, fenestrated fleurettes
Jazzy joy, jewels

Oblique, ornate operas
Pendulous pollen
Sensuous, supernovas
Drunken diversion

    • Lol TY Di – yes – I am slowly lolloping towards the finishing line like a great big poetic sloth. 🙂 I will endeavour to really push the boat out on these last three, I just hope I can find sufficient inspiration for them, the last few days are always the hardest!

  1. Terrific and tremulous. What a good trochee. I would have liked seeing you. Photo will suffice. Enjoying your poetry. You write like Shakespeare. Well, maybe not like Shakespeare. Like David Ellis! 🙂

    • Lol TY Lori, what a wonderful comment, to be compared to the bard himself 🙂 Someone actually made a up a rhyme for where I used to work that rhymed with my being The Bard of the place, which was hilarious! I did want to do a video but when the poems are that short, I feel like I’m going to be talking for ten seconds and then off again into the wind, leaving nothing but a flower and a spinning chair, like a modern day Scarlet Pimpernel! Hope to record new videos with the last three, I think I will focus on longer forms or write more verses 😉
