the 12 given words:
beauty, pretend, stars, moonlight, sing 
pass frog flashing,see, taste, clear, air

A thing of beauty, the sleeping beauty
To pretend anxiously waiting in the wings
Waiting to be enticed by the Prince wannabe
A great pretender a star in the making

Blue Moon eclipsed coyly by the clouds
Rare encounter reputed 150 years in waiting
A stranger in the sky anticipating a shout-out
Moonlight bright open for a sing

To pass off as a gentleman, frogs galore
To see flashing in attire a novelty in action
A taste of the Prince in all of its wonder
To clear the air invoke the transformation

Prompt: Pick one stranger and write their eulogy. 
Imagine their triumphs, the funny little stories

eulogy for a stranger


  1. Wonderful examples of beauty waing in the wings. Great to read Hank.


  2. Yeah that was one fantastic Blue Moon. Nicely teamed up with other wonders of fairy tales I still luv
    Happy you dropped by my blog Hank

    much love...

  3. Who knew the blue moon brought out sharp dressed frogs?

  4. I'm glad it is the ladies who kiss those frogs. I wouldn't like it, I hear of warts. This was a fun read, Hank.

  5. I'm happy for the frogs... it takes a princess for a frog.

  6. That is sure a long time to wait. Who knew a blue moon could be so grand.

  7. What a stupid race we are to see the mystic in an ordinary event in the depth of time but rare for animals with short lives.

  8. really like the word choice and flow of this poem. You strike a balance of whimsy and moroseness. Well done and thanks for posting to the out of standard.

  9. Blue moons and fairy tales are a perfect combination.

  10. The patient moon does witness all
