This was my 2012

Laurie at real toads had challenged us to write a poem with all the words provided each month through 2012:
Nonsense x
Ethereal x
Perspective x
Effervescence x
Turgid x
Dementia x
Demarcation x
Miscreant x
Bottleneck x
Zen/Meditation x
Burlap

I took the challenge an itsy bitsy bit further by making it into a 2012 roundup.  I hope it brings a smile to these last days of the year.

This year of 2012
Has been a busy one
Full of ethereal thoughts
Alongside nonsense and fun

Looking back over the months
It's nice to get perspective
Although when trying to recall
I feel dementia might be onset

There's been lots of effervescence
With a little miscreant pleasure
Very little that was turgid
Thanks to the meditation behaviour

In the middle there was a bottleneck
A clear demarcation
Sorting out family and work time
Ensuring we got the balance

I'm ready now to tie it up
In a burlap type of sack
Goodbye to this year gone by
I wonder what'll be 2013s tack.

I wonder, too, but I know it will be filled with wonderful poetry!

Wow! You managed this clever feat rather quickly. Good job. And may 2013 be as fun-filled and thrilling as any that preceded it!

Nicely done! I'm ready to toss 2012 in a burlap sack myself and perhaps throw it off a bridge!

You make it seem so easy to include all the words... really nicely done. I'm glad the bottleneck got resolved.

I love the image and how you tied it up so neatly.

I too wonder what 2013 will bring...like your reflection through this list of words.

I often get the feeling that dementia may not be far off! Life can be hectic.

All the best for 2013.

What a wonderful roundup of the year using Laurie's word list! I could only use a few. Way to go, Emma.
