Down by the Bog


Poefusion Friday 5 offers five words for prompt: prey, quacky, cranberry, fling and winsome. Click the link to see what others responded and feel free to join in Michelle's challenging meme.



not all forms of prey
are perfectly toothsome

observe the intimacy
as a quacky mallard,

using a cranberry
as the new paradigm,

picks one to fling
toward a winsome hen

but only creates wasteful
Rorschach blots of red





Fractal created in Apophysis.

that was a great play on words... flinging is such an action word... and everyone's use from the prompt has been awesome!!... now the intimacy of a flinging cranberry for love... that's just lovely... fractal is interesting with the red color so vivid..

What an odd coincidence – I used mallard in mine too, but I didn't make them quack.

Your light tone and fun scenario work very well with this odd assortment of quacky words. A great poem
