imaginary toad in real garden

 

mr. toady,

poor bloke,

he croaked!

“call a spade

a raccoon,” i said.

go bury bumpy

next to his lumpy

mortician’s binary

fission beautician

beneath the

sassafras bush.

but whatever

you do, don’t

sneeze at rich

dark chocolate

syrupped-steak

served up hot

by pink-vested

bobble bunnies

with sides of steamy

blue lobster rainbows

under kettle-korn

skies…or you may

shatter my shiny

silver-plattered

mad-hattered

dreams.

So, what do you think of my new garden ornament?  Linked to d’Versepoets

    or you may
    shatter my shiny
    silver-plattered
    mad-hattered
    dreams.

    Love that and your blue frog yard ornament… what a treat to see him peeping out

    Sometimes toads can be quite solid to be imaginary..

    How very creative, though for a moment I thought you were referring to the other poetry garden ~ I specially like pink vested bubble bunnies 🙂

    Perhaps you now will be crowned the princess of Flarf, for the unusual combinations & images you created tickle my toes with raspberry flarf dust.

    This one had a comfort – kind of the way a peppermint patty is both yummy and makes me feel ‘clarified’.
