Whimsical heirloom

A girl from down the street
Had something to celebrate
An heirloom left from granny
Preserved her whimsical fancy

Today by happenstance
I observed it when walking past
I reserved my commentary
But my transparency gave it away

The punk wanted to soar
Conserving the lion's roar
But the freeze of imperfection
Transfused the condensation

Awards it might deserve
For memories conserved
But my monologue tonight
Is a clutch of fear and fright

So tomorrow from first dawn
A riverbed's on my lawn
It'll saturate the grass
But that osmosis won't last

Within a week or so
Her statue will oodle below
Without a singe or flame
Our road will be pure again


Helen at Real Toads gave us a list of words as inspiration for our poetry today.  We were invited to use three but I couldn't resist the temptation to use them all.

My goodness this is great! I can't believe you managed to use all of them! This made me smile..nothing slicker than drowning an heirloom by making one's grass greener. :)

Helen said...

You have an amazing way of rising to challenges! Love this.

I tried to use them all, but just couldn't manage it.
Kudos to you for an excellent response to the prompt.
