Run Away Wordplay, Within a Poem

Wordplay

What to create today?! Wordplay (Photo credit: Michael Boitin)

 

Poems are fun to write, poems are fun to read, language is compelling and so is this sentence. Hmmm, I think we have a run-on sentence.

Aha, so we do, christyb!

Pssst, I think christyb is in a silly mood today.

Pssst, it’s not much of a secret today.

Okay, okay. Today’s poem is silly and it’s about run-on sentences. We have all read them, and we have likely all written at least one (or two).

Run Away Wordplay

The run-on sentence runs away from
Here and over to there, where
No punctuation marks exist, only
Fattening lines that stretch the waist of
Vocabulary-dense language, while
The appetite for length is greater than
Minds can digest.
Punctuate now. Exhale.

This is christyb, wishing you a day of silly, happy moments.

    Christy;

    I love this poem about writing…

    It makes me thinks about automatic writing, and lines flowing without stopping its natural course…

    Words trying to reach a meaning, a sense… Words refusing to be mere words.

    Words going throughout all sort of feelings, words stepping forward to catch an idea without even noticing capital letters, spelling or proofreading…

    Words answering to a subtle call, unstoppable words.

    Punctuate now. Exhale.

    Sending love, Aquileana πŸ™‚

    Silly? I thought this was a fun read.

    Were you hinting on something here?

    Punctuation marks – stretch marks?
    Fattening lines that stretch the waist – LOL
    Dense – that describes most humans
    The appetite – well, now πŸ™‚
    Minds can digest – yes, but not the stomach
    Exhale – don’t hold it in πŸ™‚

    Loved it, very cute. For some reason (maybe the Title: Runaway Word Play)…I was compelled to read it very quickly, with the words just rolling together. I couldn’t seem to read it fast enough, the words were flowing so well together. I ended up with a big smile on my face. LOL.
