An Invitation: A Poem Using the word: “inchoate” (in-ko-it)

Giant misses his golden goose

Giant misses his golden goose

(This is not the poem I’m submitting, but is an inchoate original.)

Jack and the Beanstalk

Inchoate seed became the source of stalk and vine’s a-climbing.
Inchoate size then boomed the voice of giant’s growl and sighing.
Inchoate muscles pulled Jack up until he made the sighting
Of golden goose in huge tree house, his golden eggs a-laying.

To get Jack down, inchoate zeal arose to steal the day;
To go back up, inchoate faith and stealth to not be found.
Inchoate giants can still be tricked by tiny folk today
For valor, strength and wily acts are not the gist of pounds!

I-Clouds Got the Dirt on You

What will the cloud hold next? More than raindrops?

What will the cloud hold next?
More than raindrops?

The i-Clouds
“got the dirt”
on you!

holds it in the haze
flies it past mountains
screens it from hawks.

Then rains it down as mud
that thuds on heads:
splotches eyes
drips off nose
blows its spatter
on what matters.

sift for seeds
to grow trees
that grow leaves
to scatter into soil
for clouds to suck
to “hold the dirt”
on you.
