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

Hannah 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.

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!

@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!

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

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.)
