APRIL WRITE 2013 – Day 27 – LANGUAGE

Posted on

Welcome to day 27 of the April Write 2013: a new era begins

Adam Rowland here again for the third and final time in 2013.

For those with a penchant for numbers, we’re 90% of the way through this year’s April Write. For those with a predilection for words – which I dare say is all of you – then this day is for you!

Today’s theme is all about language, and I have titled my piece ‘Lexicon’.

A lexicon comprises all a language’s words, and is used together with a language’s grammatical rules; together, the lexicon and grammar comprise the language.

Language is very important to me, as I am sure it is to you. You can bend it, shape it, even beat it up and it will still bend to your every future whim. It can make people laugh, cry; it can even incite violence and start wars. It is all powerful – and potentially very dangerous.

Please feel free to explore this theme in any way that is meaningful to you.

I look forward to reading your respective – and respectable – pieces.

Cheers,
Adam

Lexicon


Synonyms and antonyms are drawn together to form ironic and sardonic statements of sincerity.
Similarly charged nouns and pronouns subtly enjoy its repulsion.
Translucent rambunctious adjectives dance on the page agitatedly.
Verbs run and dance and sing.
Figurative incursions of speech violate the norm.
The comma baulks.
The full stop cannot come soon enough.

THE APRIL WRITE 2012 – POETS OLYMPIAD – DAY 27 – FREE VERSE 4

Posted on

Welcome to Day 27 of the 2012 April Write – the Poets Jubilee Olympiad.

Today should’ve been a Freaky Friday but I decided our last Friday of the April Write should be our 4th Free Verse day and it means you are allowed to write a poem on whatever topic you want and this time… INCLUDING erotica.

We‘re just 3 days away from our Live Skype finale on Monday. It’s free and anyone can join in to listen or to read their final poem. Go to the Facebook group for more details.

Day 27 of the April Write is a Free Verse Day. With no topics to hold you back! Let’s get this party started…

Watch today’s video to hear my poem.
