Making an impact


in dentistry, a tooth with deep roots


the dentist drills, cracks, pulls, and maybe even burns-

and then there is a space- where the tooth had been


impacted- squished, pushing against each other

eye contact minimal; everyone tired

the buses were late again – filled to capacity


impacted-4 sardines glistening in a can

broiled, smoked, add a little mustard


pack em in- eat em up, but if you really want to make an impact


a little hot pepper for extra flavour and a strong impact


“she’ll blow it anyway” now how is it that with all the many ways to use the word

impact, why is the strongest hit the one with the word “blow” in it?


impact – to make an impression

to strike hard

the batter knocked that one out of the park- could you hear the impact?


Bang! now that was forceful

“so confined in its socket as to be incapable of normal eruption”- dictionary

Did you know? volcanoes erupt and then- oh the impact

lava everywhere, spewing forth like an – what is that word?


(really interrupts everything)


– We interrupt the regular blog with this attempt at sharing “dictionary poetry”

   Did it have an impact? 



Now you try 🙂
