One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

There's only coffee in my coffee, I swear.

Marian said...

rock n roll!

grapeling said...

Marian, you're an Incubus groupie? Hawt. :) I think they have something other than coffee in their coffee.

Hannah said...

Yay!! That was fun!! Thanks FB!!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Such a fun prompt for a frazzled Friday. Thanks FB.

Marian said...

A very cool challenge, and a lot of concepts to kick around--I of course feel a certain affinity for some words,...ahem, but have had others light a fire under me, so I am trying to decide between two poems--or, I may just post them both.
Thanks, FB.

Thanks for a good prompt. Looking forward to some good reading.

Sorry pardon yet again for not being serious! ♥

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Guarang, your sign in thingy wont let me post. Just wanted to say your vivid nightmare would do me in. I hope I never have one like it. Makes for a good poem, though!

Ella said...

Fun Friday! :D
Off to play~

Marian, that would be the Incu-bus, yes? Isn't that a Residents song? or maybe the Replacements. "On the bus". One of those 80's R bands. REM. Roxy Music. Ratt.

Marian said...

this dude is an INCUBUS. he don't wanna kiss me on the bus. :)

Kerry O'Connor said...

Loved yours as always, Marian. You always deliver!

Ella said...

I want to write another one! I love this challenge :D
I have to run to a football game, but I will be back to read. I'm only stay for 1/2 the game. My daughter preforms at half time-I know me bad!

Margaret said...

SHAY!!! I am dumbstruck - this is too hard. It's almost midnight and I have to go to the horse barn in the morning and then run to my daugher's college and take her grocery shopping, etc. I don't want to read anyone's yet (but I did read Mama Zens as she posted early and I was tempted)... and now I'm intimidated ;P

Sigh. Will come back and post late if my brain can get creative... Good night.

Debi Swim said...

My first poem of this kind of prompt - a bit of a challenge but lots of fun!

Debi Swim said...

@Gaurang Rao

I couldn't post on your blog - something about "legacy mode" or something... anyway, just wanted to say - so glad it was a dream even if it was a nightmare.

Susie Clevenger said...

Love the challenge Fireblossom! Sorry I am late!!

Herotomost said...

I tried...not sure how that one turned out...but had a good time doing it.

Fireblossom said...

I hope that I got around to everyone. If I somehow missed yours, please let me know!

Rambling Woods said...

Ah..not a writer but I do love frogs and toads..Michelle

Outlawyer said...

I am very late to this party but there are so many ideas here I could not resist. This is Karin of Manicddaily.k.

Debi, I could not post on yours either so I put it with the Monday page. But this is for Firebloom Friday (I should not have watched the news today so it is political with a lot of inside cultural idioms and jokes trying to make sense the two lists for a title evoked.)
