This week I decided to combine my two poetry prompts – Magpie Tales & the Poetry Bus. You can see the Magpie prompt below. The Watercats (click on the link to see the other poets) is driving the poetry bus this week & asked us to write about sex, drugs, rock, and/or roll. I decided to write about rock and roll - & maybe there're some drugs in there too. Who knows? Certainly not this author LOL! I just write 'em – I don't have to understand 'em.
Fish Out Of Water
There's a concert going on
up the street.
A relentless ocean
a relentless pounding
Its own entity.
a being of music
shouting her down
drowning her out
in this psychedelic

I love the idea of a psychedelic fishbowl, that's an excellent image!.. and a great poem all round, cheers! :-DReplyDelete
Yes mighty psychadelic fishbowl I have to say, like the drowned outedness towards the end.ReplyDelete
That sure is how it feels!ReplyDelete
Hey, clever piece combining the two prompts. Cool!ReplyDelete
Ooh! A twofer! I like the repetition of relentless in this and a psychadelic fishbowl, neat!ReplyDelete
Nice one Bug! I like that you say you write 'em but don't have to understand 'em!ReplyDelete
Music can be a beautiful or an alienating thing. You capture that well. Yabba dabba!
A great contemporary piece-- I think it fits perfectly.ReplyDelete
Being drowned out in a psychedelic fishbowl - love it!ReplyDelete
You brought off this two-fer in great style!ReplyDelete
Omigosh, great image! Wonderful...!ReplyDelete
Drowned by waves of music in a fish bowl. Love it.ReplyDelete
"drowning her in this psychedelic fishbowl" - great imagery. Nice.ReplyDelete
I love how you combined the two (wish I'd thought of it). I really like the waves washing over her. You have definitely caught the feeling that music can bring.ReplyDelete
psychodelic fishbowl...i like that...not the drowning part, but...smiles. nicely done magpie!ReplyDelete
Fascinating concept of a fish drowning in sound waves! An immersion of another world...ReplyDelete
Fun, and a wonderfully chosen picture to boot!ReplyDelete
I do sometimes wonder what we look like to fish in bowls. Are we friendly, or menacing giants? Distorted or improved by the glass?
Wonder the fish-eye-view is like?
A psychedelic fishbowl - what a great concept! Well done, Bug.ReplyDelete
Psychedelic indeed! Who would have thought? Loved this ......ReplyDelete
A rather clever poem and the words give the picture of just how it was, wonderful imagery.ReplyDelete
A being of music..what a trip..really like the rush of this!!ReplyDelete
wow loved it...did you say psycho fish bowl!?!?!? oh just kiddingReplyDelete
loved the invented words or ideas...ReplyDelete
creative magpie indeed...
I can relate to what I think you're saying. "There's a concert going on up the street . . " says to me, it's not going on here where I am. I was not a partier, and sometimes I regretted it. But I'm thinking it's probably for the best when all is said and done.ReplyDelete
But I can party now! :)
Good one! Sorry to be so repetitive, but this is just brilliant;ReplyDelete
in this psychedelic
Hooked on music, eh? Great image, Bug!ReplyDelete
Dear The Bug: Wonderful combinations: never heard of it put this way quite before: original. Why would one drown in a psychedelic fishbowl of sound? You had to be there. I was there and you were there, man Intense poetry! Love it!ReplyDelete
Music and fish -- a good combination. Check out Schubert's "Trout" Quintet.ReplyDelete
There may not have been any drugs, but I bet she took something. Wonderful imagery!ReplyDelete
Psychedelic fish bowl? YES! Very descriptive.ReplyDelete
I like how in a few lines you have create a clear image and created strong emotions. I like the music rushes over through by her, in waves. Great line!ReplyDelete
mine is up,
thank you for reading it.
You Deserve Happiness!
