Poetry Prompt #16 – Alphabet – July 1, 2014

Warning!!! This poem was written for the weekly poetry prompt created by Oloriel Moonshadow.  What we had to do was choose one letter and begin every word in the poem with that letter … I chose the letter G.  Obviously the poem is written in Giant Lingo 😉 .

Great Gnats!!!
Girly gravid giantess, Grimace Grace,
Grouse Grindstone’s granddaughter,
Graced Greasy Grimily’s “Grovel Garden”
Gulping generously
Green garlicky goodies.

Grimace Grace grunted guardedly:
“Greetings great Genoese gourmet,
Greasy Grimily,
Grand garlicky garnished grump!”

Graciously, Greasy Grimily grins:
“Girly giantess, Grimace Grace, gravely gravid,
Genial gutter-snipe gourmand:
Generous gargle-blasting garden grunts
Gather gleaming …
Gum-tree grappling geraniums!

Giantess Grimace Grace, grumbled grumpily:
“Great glowing Gnats … Grazie, Greasy Grimily,
Grunting goony gory gnome!
Give gathering garden grunts, greetings!
Garlicky garnished gizzard giblets –
Greasy gristly gravy – ground grey gravel garnished!
GO! GO! GO!”

Great Genoese gourmet giant,
Greasy Grimily,
Glowered gloomily,
Guessing ground grey gravel gives
Gristly gravy, garnish …
Greatly galvanizing,
Gullible gourmand gravid giantesses,
Giving genial grape-nutty goodness.
Good grassy garlicky gooey gunk,
Guarantees gracious gravidy!

Going – Going –Gone
Greasy Grimily galloped gracelessly
Grunting grimly:
“Great Gnats!
Grimace Grace’s getting gormless gloomy!
Great graceless goose …
Grrrrr … Gravid giantesses get grumpy!”

Greasy Grimily gathered garlic,
Grass, gravy goo, gunk
gizzard giblets …
Giving Grimace Grace’s
Great gravid grossness,
Garlicky garnished gizzard giblets –
Greasy gristly gravy – ground grey gravel garnished …
Guaranteeing Grouse Grindstone’s
Gad-fly generosity:
Grimace Grace gobbled,
Glowing gravid grateful grins.

*Gradisci = Do you want some.

Written for Oloriel’s Poetry Prompt.

  1. What an amazing challenge and you did such a great job! I enjoyed reading this and some words like gunk reminded me of the gunk on my windshield. yuk! I am terminating internet, satellite and home phone this week…may wait until after my return to find a cheaper internet provider and subscribe to NetFlex. Hope your net improves.


      • Are you kidding?!! I bought that keyboard for my Tablet (sheer robbery) for the purpose of writing now and then and of course my notebook.Writing for me is like reciting the rosary every day 😀


        • pshew! (she says as she wipes the cold sweat feomher brow) I tend to forget that you’ve so many wifi opps on your side of the pond so you might connect for a period without home service … a friend of mine just bought one and I agree pure theft! Know what you mean about writing 😀


          • Hotel has WiFi, and if they didn’t I’d go to Tim Horton’s…haha…the bus that goes to Toronto from Montreal has WiFi and outlets, the train and plane do too…we are set to get plugged…intravenous internet…haha


          • Loverly! That’s one of your advantages! But seems that Italy is finally getting the idea that wifi is a good thing, and at least for a day or too you get free wifi in the hotel … some caffès have it here in Riva and Arco .. but usually you have to pay out the nose to use it.
