Pithy Empurpled Writing
Magniloquent words of
an empurpled writer.
Where lofty, yet showily expressed
words make details brighter.
Concise, rhetorically composed
words made solely for an effect.
Causing pithy comments to draw
a picture, for readers to connect.
The complexion and pigment of colorful
words then meld into a spectral light.
Blended with the authors passion
for the topic, causing both to ignite.
Smooth white sands
blow across the dune
Distant notes from a
banjo floats into a tune.
Ancient ironweed graces
the desert with vibrant color
As sunset beckons for twilight
to be evenings romantic caller.
Beach peas and daisies grow
between cliffs of living stone
Stand embellished fig trees
on seeded winds were flown.
Written with a shimmer of color
floating on an iridescent feather.
Titillates the plateau of ones senses
on aromatic breezes of white heather.
first three have definitions to words in each stanza
center three stanza's and last are examples of
expression relative to the first three.
