Fireblossom Friday in Imaginary Garden



THE LOVESTRUCK STRIPPER

the lovestruck stripper tried to be 
reincarnated studiously,
in order to impress
the man whom she’d obsessed
upon, unexpectedly.

a very studious prodigy, he
undertook preparatory
politically-correct zookeeping,
alas, the stripper came back, weeping,
still lovestruck, but just a zombie.


Fireblossom Fridays at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads are always unexpected, and usually fun. Today's was more fun than most. Fireblossom gave us two lists of words: one of adjectives, one of nouns, and asked us to choose one of each for our title, then write a poem about the resulting character.

Fireblossom herself can be more fun than most, as well, and her two lists of words were wonderful to choose from. I couldn't help using many more of them in my poem, as well as the two I used in my title.

Here are FB's two lists:
terrifying
regretful
miniscule
inebriated
envious
reincarnated
obsessive
lovestruck 
studious
unexpected
sherpa
ecclesiastic
docent
incubus
Gypsy
zookeeper
CSI
zombie
stripper
prodigy

Lots of fun, Kay. You made all those words cohabit together without benefit of clergy very nicely. Nothing will turn you from a stripper to a zombie quicker than love. ;_)

Wonderful write Kay! My, you managed it very well, more words than asked for. It ran smooth!

Excellent, Kay. I love the way you used so many of the prompt words - wish I'd thought of that:-)

Nicely done, Kay!! I love the progression and ending on the zombie image is a nice twist, too! :)

Debi Swim said...

You are so adept at these word challenges ... love how you incorporated so many of Shay's words.

Ella said...

Clever Kay! I too love how cool you penned this one~ YOU even added my favorite word zombie ;D

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Started grinning at the title and grinned all the way through.

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Sherry — if you were grinning for a while, I'm glad.

Oh, poor stripper! I especially love "preparatory politically-correct zookeeping!" I studied that subject in school but got a D!

You work so hard at your fun! I love it. What an imagination.

Kay you have been truly awesome lately. The last few of yours I have read have been so good they make smile not just because they are clever, but because you have really been putting up some handsome words and this one is no different. Funny and well written....you rock!
