For "Real Toads" — Snowball and Univocalism

Kenia, a member of the writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, has presented several different writing challenges today. I have already responded to two of them, and herewith offer a "Snowball" (each line is one word, and each is one letter longer than the previous word). Here, also, is my best attempt at something called "Univocalism" in which only one vowel sound is allowed, but various forms of that sound may be used, once each, as I understand it. More than a trifle limiting, but interesting nevertheless. Thanks, Kenia. That's all from me today.

Yep, you certainly had your way with these constraints. Phew! The snowball worked out really well within your theme, and I loved the very Canadian, eh? on the end of the univocal piece!

Kay,
Snowballing into something enjoyable, another trip to another city? Good for you! We'll wait for the pics!

Snowballing form looks like much fun and I liked the image at the end!! Surely must have slid down the snow mountain you have created!! Love the tourist activity of international philosophizing. :)
The univocalism form looks challenging with all its limitations!!
