Let's take a walk...
This time, I ask you to write a poem which features a famous person.
They may be admirable,
They may be real or imaginary,
living or dead.
They can be someone who inspires you,
Just a few rules. Yes, rules! I know, Fireblossom making rules. What's up with that? Anyway, please write an original poem for this challenge; don't just recycle an older poem. And make your famous person an important part of the piece, not just a passing mention.
Then sign the linky so we can see what you've written, and i will be around to comment! have fun!

After reading Shay's, I feel a bit anticlimactic, but loved the prompt and wrote about someone who is famous not in her own right, but as a muse, whom we only know as a character in her husband's writing, but who was nonetheless a real and intriguing person.
I have got a cute little hero.....thanks for the prompt.
This one has my dormant brain spinning from one possibility to another.
Thanks a bunch, Shay!!! This is a great prompt...there're more that I probably would like to write about but I snagged the first person that really stood out for me...a classic! Smiles and a happy weekend to all!
Thanks for such an interesting prompt.
Wonderful prompt idea!
First I miss Ellen's prompt and now I'm going to miss yours. I'm feeling somewhat better, but no one has told my brain yet. I can post photos, but that's about it.
So sorry, FB, because I think this is a great idea.
King of the cowboys,
with Dale Evans at his side.
and always caught the bad guys.
Ever a favorite
on the Saturday matinee
that cost a quarter;
the highlight of the day.
Hope you feel better soon Kay--and Ella, hope you get your AC fixed. That is misery!
Hugs to all!
Thanks for the share
My icon... oh my!
Hi Fireblossom - I really enjoyed this prompt - I had almost sworn off prompts for a while--thanks much. I went the writer's route. K.
for some reason my heart does this funny flopping thing at the sight of Rasputin....I am all over this challenge, but may need a few days to ponder....
Looking forward to reading some of the entries.. :-)
Me being late seems fitting for this challenge! LOL :)
I cut and pasted the following from my Blog:
Thank you Imaginary Gardens!
This is a real toad--a poem that has been in my mind since my dissertation research in 1989-90--pulled out of my history by yesterday's challenge "Fireblossom Friday ~ Get Famous." My book was not published, and so I perished from my tenure-track teaching position at W&M, but in so many other ways I came to life during the same years. Thank you Ellen Stewart and thank you Fireblossom, for helping me to celebrate her life.
If I can get the smoke signals to work . . .
Love the prompt. I knew immediately who I would write about. And it seems I am always a day late and a poem short.
Thank you, everyone for participating! I think I have been around to every post--from Elvis to Emily, and from Jezebel to Bugs Bunny--but if I have somehow overlooked yours, please do let me know. I don't want to miss any of you guys's responses.
late to the party, but i did it. heavy.
Oh my! You all are so classy! I just had to lower the bar a bit!
sorry i'm so late ~ it'll take me a day or two to visit everyone, but really looking forward to it.
FUN prompt, Fireblossom! thank you!
And I'm even later - as incentive, I've added videos of my subject. Thanks for humoring me. Mosk
