Written for: Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads: “Stuff and Nonsense”
Given the mood in my country over the last month, I wanted to steer today’s prompt in a more lighthearted direction. Art doesn’t have to be serious to be meaningful. Sometimes a smile or even a full belly laugh can be more healing than somber contemplation.
I’ve created three nonsense words I would like you to incorporate in your poem:
snarfdiffanous, rhambangle and lalamilty.
In land of Lalamilty
it often gets chilly.
Children in rhambangles
sometimes get tangled
in long locks leaving hair a mess.
Only snooty girls feel snarfdiffanous.
