dVerse — surrealism — Holiday Dance

Image result for dali dance

Reclining in my easy chair
Eating apple chips
Crunching a duet
With the groans of icebergs
Red mash, Blue mountain
Match made in a sitcom
Archie! Archie! Archie!
Meathead’s spaghetti
Ball necklace
Miniature reindeer
With red noses
Prance dance by as
A terrible trollbird alights
On the iceberg’s peek
Dali dances by
With a mountain goat
As my intestines
Do a rumba
Ole’!
Holiday rattling bones
Like dice
Snake eyes!

Go to your favorite place to write, relax and close your eyes. Let your mind roam free, be wild, give little thought to where you are going with this prompt. Pick up your writing instrument and put words on paper – there are no limitations other than your own (well okay there is one- please keep it to 200 words or less)- BE FREE. Try not to let your mind justify your musings.

  2. On vacation you should be careful with your diet…
    the stomach doing rumba sounds like a trip to India.

      I wish I could say it hasn’t been years since I had a vacation (other than in my mind…)

    Very surreal, SOC, and bona fide Flarf. We haven’t had a nonsense prompt in a while, and you dove into it like a trouper.

      Thanks Glenn, I tried to put myself in a Dali frame of mind. Is flarf an acroynm?

    I’ve shared some Dali paintings with quotes on social media, but felt embarassed about many others 🙂

      LOL Reena. I tried to get as “surreal” as I could with the “poem” and then searched for “Dali” and “dance” and this picture came up.

    I like the sounds in this poem, Jade: ‘Crunching a duet / With the groans of icebergs’, and the echo of the iceberg later in the poem. The ending made me smile.

    Dali in words as they ooze and drip off the paper.
    Someone had too much turkey and that after meal nap… speaks of indigestion!
    Yes you captured the image very well.
