April - Poetry Month - Day Twenty-Six - Z is for Zany Words


       Happy Poetry Month, where poems parade in the streets, run like rivers within our veins or settle in our hearts every.single,time. 
       I am using this older book pictured left that follows the alphabet with one kind of prompt each day. I used this book on occasion in the classroom years ago, but never worked through it day by day, with deliberation! Here goes!

      Hey! I made it all the way from A to Z! Here's my poem for "zany" words!

My Zany Time


I’m sure it’s indeterminant

how to define a list

of words defined as zany.

Isn’t it often hit or miss?

You may like ones I choose or not

but this time it’s up to me.

a favorite that I love to say is 

“Yes! I’ll have a skosh of tea.

Then others around who hear the word

smile and even laugh.

They try to honeyfuggle me

but I know it will not last.

They want to find another word,

become iconoclasts.

It’s clear they have no better choice,

cannot be superseders.

My own long list, my pride and joy

also includes, Tada!, a word 

you lately might’ve never heard



I guess I’ll stopple!
