NaPoWriMo Day Twenty: Rodomontade


I am
wiser than an
owl, stronger than cyclops
yummier than goat cheese I am

written 4/20/13 for 

This one was fun. even if I cheated on the cinquain a bit. The prompt for today was to use at least five words from this list below. I love these kinds of challenges and I think it all fell into place.

owl generator abscond upwind squander clove miraculous dunderhead
cyclops willowy mercurial seaweed gutter non-pareil artillery
salt curl ego rodomontade elusive twice ghost cheese cowbird
truffles velte quahog bilious 


  1. I like it.
    Sometimes the only way to win is to cheat..... we all have to decide whether that justifies it for ourselves.
    You must be great, because I really like goats cheese – no kidding....
    Have a great week.

    1. Hi Sleepshort! I tend to take liberties with poetic form :-}. Isn't goat cheese the best? Thanks for stopping by and have a great week too!.

  2. Wow. Great job...I could only find potential insult, which I felt the need to disavow, lurking in the list...I salute your positive, culinary takeaway!

    1. Hi Shirley! Welcome to the lasagna! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the poem. I liked writing this one. Although I did agonize a little over the extra syllable. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Love the humor and word choices blinded into unique. :)


Hi! Thank you for the visit! Grab a plate and a sweet tea and let's dig in. It may take a while, but I always try to reply and return visits.
