obscurantism

'' A style in art and literature characterized by deliberate vagueness or obliqueness.''
obscurantism

Mid night here
Too hot to sleep
AC'S not working
the electricity fails the public

I made many poets here
follow me
in composing
FREE VERSE poetry

Stan has thought of introducing
a Jun competition free style
28 lines
why 28 only he knows
may be a gene of
obscurantism

Snow man hates it (free style)
yet is the first one to post it .

I woke up in the middle of the night
a word
obscurantism
came to my obscure mind
and
I thought of challenging
the newer human generic minds
to compose a poetry
in any style
19 lines

the theme and meaning
of the word has been highlighted
You need not challenge me
I Googled it

Stan are you round the corner
O man here it's about to dawn
and a new morn
should be naturally born
no Caeserian
it's dangerous

Style / type: 
Free verse

Obscurantism challenge....

Ley lines
through the sun
burn wicked
wicker man poses

Pull that thread through the
Anticipation
Precipitation
Weather
Station

Watch as the flames die drown
the ordinary
Let the fragrance
waft over the clouds
into the buds of new born flowers

A wanderer wonders why
the blossom grows with vigor
It steals the flames of the sun
feels no shame
petals undone

obscurantism is like in you
grey matter
you r the first
obscurantant
wear a golden pendant
this comment also is as obscure
for bikinis shore

A lot talk about obscure and abstract poetry lately. Here's one I've been working on. This is my 46th revision.. I know what I am trying to say. The suffering that went into this work, the endless carving of every syllable. If you don't understand it, ITS TOO BAD!!!

OPUS 46

The days pass like red ants
Within the bowels of the whale
A cacophony of lava meets sea
The hose of orbits spout dragonflies
I am that Daniel
Hoist hoist the rooster
on his osso bucco
Moonlight on the wilderbeest
Forgetfulness of hammock
O train of totem poles
Bringeth the warmer seedlings

Send the numerals to riverbanks
Whilst
The pizza is sonata to whiteout

Hope you enjoyed, :)

than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

except for a typo maybe
white/wilder beast !

wilderbeest????

great works

author comment

yes it was a typo! (The wildebeest is a symbol of reincarnation in Xanadu.)

I'm not sure what you mean "qualify"....this poem is a defining oeuvre, my tour de force!
But sadly I think it will be misunderstood...what fools these mortals be!

(Onward to more interesting things. I just read a skull was discovered in Morocco that dates mankind another 100,000 years! So we are not 200,000 old as a species, but 300,000. It's amazing we can find one bone and date ourselves that way...simply amazing. 100,000 years seems to be a pretty long time!)
Have a great day

qualify denotes
it's as obscure
from a poet of your
lure
for sure
