    Thirty – An Exercise in June


    Just
    understand –
    nobody
    expects

    jousting;
    unless
    (k)nights
    encounter

    jeweled
    unicorns.
    Never
    extrapolate

    justice
    unethically.
    Nurture
    everyone’s

    joy,
    undertaking
    new
    endeavors.

    Judgment
    unbidden
    negates
    experience.

    Joists
    upholding
    numbered
    entrances

    juxtapose
    useful
    nude
    edges

    jutting
    upward.
    Now
    everything

    jaundiced
    unravels
    nutated
    exhalations;

    joining
    ululating
    natives.
    Encouraging

    jagged
    ulcerations
    never
    elicits

    jaunty
    umbrages.
    Naughty
    elves

    justify
    unkempt
    nails,
    exclaiming

    jolly
    utterances;
    noels
    expedited

    jeeringly.
    Umami
    noodles
    excite

    jurors;
    unexpectedly
    nutritious
    enrichment.

    Junior
    undertakers
    navigate
    eternity’s

    jurisprudence
    usefully;
    needing
    every

    justly
    unexcitable
    nerve
    exposed.

    Journeys
    unplanned,
    necessitate
    elasticity.

    Jugglers’
    uniformity
    nurtures
    exceptional

    jocularity.
    Untrimmed
    nasturtiums
    emit

    jubilantly
    undeterred
    nebulosity.
    Eggs

    jostled,
    unilaterally
    need
    enclosures.

    Joining
    unbroken
    numbers,
    explorers

    journeyed
    until
    natural
    exigencies

    jerked
    unsuspecting
    neophytes
    entirely.

    Java,
    unlike
    nondescript
    entrees,

    jolts
    unregulated
    nerves
    ecstatically.

    30 days has Sept-April, JUNE......and I love this. J starting each of the 30 stanzas and a story unfolds! How did you come up w/ this one? CLEVER RhymeLovingWriter

      It's a new method I've been using called 'how to avoid writing a blog post when you don't have any ideas'! Each stanza actually spells out J-u-n-e with the first letters of each line - which is why it's silly and disjointed in some ways. A few of the stanzas work. I don't know if I'd have the stamina or desire to do a thirty day exercise on September - nor would anyone probably want to read it! Still, it gives you more letters to work with to create a more coherent context. Thanks for engaging it Suz-zen, and leaving a like and comment!

      Well, it's been quite a long time since I used this form - and I almost always miss it the first time when others use it too! Glad you enjoyed it!

      Thanks Alex. I think it's a little long, but once I got the idea of 30 into my head I was like a dog with a bone and wouldn't let it go.

    An incredible feat, Paula, that deserves the deepest tip of the hat in recognition of your rhyming prowess! I am left with my mouth open, barely able to articulate the word 'Wow'!

      Well, aside from the fact that there's no intentional rhyming (now I'm going to have to go back and read it again myself) - I appreciate your enthusiasm NYS - and your patience in reading it through!

      That's so weird...I had to read it through two more times before I realised that it had no end-of-the-line rhyme... Sorry! It just shows how good you are with words, that even when you don't use e-o-t-l-rhyme, it still feels like it rhymes!
Working...
