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.

Fireblossom Friday

Happy Halloween, Toads and Pond followers! Fireblossom here. Today is, of course, Halloween, and so the easy thing, the brainless thing, would be to say, "write something spooky!" But, I bet you expect more than that from me.

Silly people!

Write something spooky for Halloween! It'll be sweeeeet.

Ha! Agree with Brendan. Ha ha.

I will likely be late, as a lot of non-poetry work going on here and a rather empty brain, but like it! k .

Spooky sweetness is just the thing for a Friday on Halloween!

I wrote a poem for your prompt, Fireblossom, intending it to be fun, but it bent in another direction. I felt powerful writing it thoough, and so give it to you here.

Whoops! Please erase one!

I'm perhaps barely meeting the "spooky" requirement but does "Off with YOUR HEAD" count in the video?

Well, I guess I'll just save my Puppies and Unicorns poem for another time . . .

Happy Halloween!

Fireblossom said...

hey everybody! What a great response! I will be around as soon as i can, but it might have to be tomorrow night, cos I am getting over the flu here, plus working.

Hey Shay--so sorry about your flu, hope you feel better. Mine may make your stomach turn a little, I'm afraid. It did me anyway. k.

Marian said...
