Ahoy there, Crew and Landlubbers following along!

As we trekked deeper into the jungle, following the vibration wiggling out tails, we came upon a nest of eggs! Gigantic ones at that! And judging by the peculiar colored patterns on the shells, this was none other than ... dun dun duh ...Easter Island!

But ... what kind of creature lays eggs bigger than us? Rowantree puzzled.

PoetsRevenge raised her hand as if in class and answered, A Duckbilled Quackapus ... ?

Jumping up and down, Heaven_sent_Kathy blurted out, I know! I know! An Emutant!

Unfortunately, everyone guessed incorrectly, as GhaddessWorship was hesitant to point out formations resembling huge three toed foot prints prevalent amongst the crushed vegetation.

And he spoke those spine shuddering words that no one ever expects,

This nest belongs to a Thesaurus Rex!

I'm trying to catch up on my sleep on daytime. Lately I have problem sleeping at night. I'm glad it's just eight more days to go.

Ahoy there, Crew and Landlubbers following along!

( ( ( thudddddd-dunnnnng ) ) )

And there we saw in a clearing of trees
resembling a bizarre lost world theme park
on the shores of the beach

the Thesaurus Rex ... dancing?

And likewise drinking dirty martinis!
roasting skewers of marshmallows!!
prancing like a fairy in a tutu!!!
Also were a handful of porky fellows
who were once upon a time those
fearsome pirates we searched for ...

along with thepositivelydark
say what ?! Tired of playing catch-up!

She hitched a ride one of their ships!
They detoured to hunt for Easter Eggs
None could outrun the Thesaurus Rex
especially since worms had no legs!

One after another the Rex caught them!
It feasted on their every unique word!!
And with the power of its Antonym
transformed them into the absurd!!!

If the beast steals our vocabularies
we will be screwed!
cried Misfitpoet89
yelluw_always grabbed her hand
and back into the jungle they squirmed!  
Panic amongst our crew ensued
and before we knew it -
we were spotted by Rex and swine!

BACK TO THE NAPOWRIMO NOW! Captains Johnny and Ahavati commanded!

But will they inch their way out of this in time?! Tune in tomorrow to find out!

Okay, DUPeeps, I just wanted to take a few moments to clarify that this challenge is named  NaPoWriMo for a reason.

National Poetry Writing Month.

Not Essay. Not Prose. Not Novel ( which incidentally is the separate challenge known as NaNoWriMo ). Not Ginormous Wall 'O Text.

We have had a couple of incidences of this so far.  It's lot easier to write such than it is to write an actual poem. And thus is not really fair to the other participants.

Please, let's keep the entries from here on out poetry only.

I know some of you are getting burned out coming up with fresh ideas. We are in the home stretch - only 8 to 9 entries left depending on who you are. You can do it.

Some of you have already completed the challenge in years prior.

Some of you already post poetry on a daily basis.

Some of you are newbs discovering there is a lot more poetry in you than you previously believed.

Let's do this the way the Gods of Poetry intended and be excited about the 30 poems we get to fuss with afterwards and possibly publish.

Sorry if this includes me, I have a tendancy to fall deep into prose. I assure you it's entirely unintentional.

I am loosely following the free form poetry style, so its poetry if it has some lyrical quality right?
