The Prince

a wondrous creature
that starts as a fish…
with newly formed arms
it climbs from the dish…
with forced abdication
it lives for a wish —
that can only be gained
from a well placed kiss…

i wrote this some time ago… i'm not sure it works as a poem… still thinking on it… a riddle maybe… but it does go with the previous post…

Great stuff Mike, and I love your Illo Friday submission. Yes, it is scary times but we do need to adapt, survive and ultimately learn to evolve. Keep up the fine work!

I like that a lot, it's very old school.

You might play around with other words besides wondrous - that's just my response, but I like the other words more and feel like it may be a place holder...Also it's never clear to me how it scans, 2 beats or three.

Kudos!
Cool and wonderful poetic to me.
I need to look at the dictionary for the word "abdication" .It's new to me.
You should do more Mocando:)
