Prompt–Monday, November 7

Write a lipogram. For more details on oulipo, check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oulipo. And lipograms: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipogram.

For this lipogram, choose a letter to not use. I will not use “e.”

For this rain to fall
without a hitch
a hiccup or a sigh,
I will not say
how lilies can
see its path.

  1. I totally used an “e” with lilies. I guess I will have to choose a different word. Maybe “frogs” or “clouds.” Not to mention “see.”
    Ah well. It is a draft and a great example of how hard it is to write without certain letters.
