NaPoWriMo 2021: 4/12/2021

Find the information here:

This prompt challenges you to write a poem using at least one word/concept/idea from each of two specialty dictionaries: Lempriere’s Classical Dictionary and the Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction. A hat tip to Cathy Park Hong for a tweet that pointed me to the science fiction dictionary and to Hoa Nguyen for introducing me to the Classical Dictionary.


Upon the wall the congoer stands
waiting to jump in the dionysias
looking for a coin
to purchase a text
upon entering the large auditorium

  1. The word dionysias caught my eye… I’m confused… apparently it means a plant (which seems to make sense for being jumped in) or the plural of festivals to the Greek god Dionysus (which would make more sense with the concept of a “congoer”)… no offense, not criticizing your work, but I’m confused :\

    Anyway, though, my point is that it caught my eye because the name Dionysus is the root of my last name.

    1. No offense taken. In the dictionary that popped up from the prompt it said dionysias meant a fountain. Maybe I read it wrong, Lol! I knew it sounded like a flower I had heard of…I will have to see if I can find it again.
