Guest Listed! with Fireblossom

Hello Toads! 
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, I'm baaaaack. Fireblossom here, the guest who just shows up without calling first, and I've brought a word list with me. The prompt is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Just pick at least three of the words from the list--or more if you wish--and create a poem which includes them. Extra credit: use one of the words in your title. Then link, share, read, step back, do-si-do and feel good about the whole thing. Here's some music to get you started.

Here is your word list, Toads. Get hopping ;-)

I am very excited to be hosting Shay aka Fireblossom's Get Listed prompt for today. She has given us an intriguing choice of words to work with, and I am looking forward to all your responses!

They are wonderful words, and I used them to be nonsensical, which I think I needed a bit of right now. Many thanks for the opportunity!

Truly wonderful words. I am going to cogitate on them a bit, put them in my nifty stand mixer and see what comes out.

Margaret said...

I am in NYC and still need to finish visiting and commenting on the weekend challenge. I will get it done soon. I am at The Met Museum of Art today.

Lori said...

I have the perfect image that would pair wonderfully with this challenge! Grabbed some words and gave it a go!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Oh my goodness, now THOSE words should stir the pot! I love Fireblossom prompts!

brudberg said...

I will come up with something for this prompt... I just love list prompts.

For some reason (unknown to me) I actually used blancmange in a poem today.

I especially couldn't resists Hokey Pokey.

Jim said...

A nice word variety. Kerry. Most times none of these will answered with any other of the same breath, let alone in one poem or paragraph. They just don't go together. But we will chart new territory and make them fit. Haha.

Shay did the word list, not Kerry

Marian said...

Whew, in under the wire LOL

Cool prompt Shay! Way behind here. Been way caught up in the World Cup. Also, I really couldn’t decide which words to use, so I used them all to create an Environmental Manifest.

Thanks Toni, I should have read Kerry's comment better. She posted, Shay wrote.

robkistner said...

Damn! “Environmental Manifesto” ...stupid spellcheck! Also, i used all your words in the oder you listed them Shay. It was extremely enjoyable to tackle your prompt! :-)

Fireblossom said...

I see have late birds to visit. Yay!

robkistner said...

Frustration continues. I am still only able to comment on a handful of Blogger sites. The rest just disappear the comments I am trying to leave for the poet.

Margaret said...

Toni. Not sure if my comments registered. I’m out of town and using my phone. Applies to everyone here.

Margaret said...

Commented on everyone’s but had trouble posting on a few with my phone. I still have the weekend challenge to visit and comment. Out of town in NYC so doing the best I can.
