Greetings Garden Dwellers and welcome back to the Out of Standard.
Here I will call upon your highest poetic powers to go beyond the ordinary and conjure up something unexpected. Today's challenge.....
Pictured above is Cut Face Cove. It's home to the most haunted shores in northern Minnesota. Some claim ghosts of fishermen wail along to its lapping water. Other's speak of sea monsters. Some still insist on werewolves. Your job: conjure up a monster that lives here and write a poem about it. Here's the catch (this is suppose go beyond expected, right?)...you'll have to follow the recipe below:
You monster must
1. Be dressed in something unexpected.
2. Have a favorite song to sooth it's rage.
3. Know only one word.
4. Be very afraid of something commonplace.
So go now, my muddy buddies and bring back something frightfully delightful.
