Golly Gosh! Friday 55 Looms!

Last week, I noticed Doctor FTSE, in his explanation of a triangular number, had given us all the chance to follow his fool proof method for producing 55 words, almost at the drop of a hat. So I've had a week to do a bit of counting and fiddling with vocabulary to produce my offering for G-Man .

have seen
the power of
words, when they are
allowed to become the focus
of a writer’s attempt to explain
an idea on a page. Immediately, our
eyeballs as well as brains begin to display
a need for some sense of order, and suddenly
the poet departs, leaving in his place a mere writer!

Okay, so it's only Thursday, but I will be able to link this ready made post first thing on Friday!


  1. Agreed. I'm going to have to try this. Well done, you!

  2. Really?
    I've never been compelled to establish a sense of order.
    It must me a Brit Thang!!

    Most Excellent structural 55

  3. Ooo! Barbed, but true! Never mind the poetry . . just look at the shape. Look at that wonderful CENTERING!

  4. Keep your hair on, Doc - it's about the only time you'll see me use it! And etheree demands it, don't you think?
