Odyssey of Oddities

Loving life hid beneath rim of cool ceramic bowl Tree frog claimed proud place, toilet's homely hole Enamoured by his simple palace making stance I bend to peer at his green grip toe stick, entranced My ordinary admonished by gaze from onxyx eyes Quick reflex and instinct, skills by which Frog relies Shine of black marble smartness lures me nearer Knowing even with my bulk, I'm somehow inferior Rubber eyelid winks, peels open again enlarged Eye wrinkles droop to hammock, I'm encouraged To nestle within humid folds, shrunk human glued Oscillated in his lid lures languishing duly pecured Spun suddenly, rubbery cocoon cosy lurches erratic Some worry occurs I'll drown outside skin hammock Prior to paranoia taking over, thrown from dizzying ride Launched into stark big bowl with steep slippery sides Swim in cistern spew strangely renders me cleansed Lap in lurid blue sends me to inevitably to S bends Whooshed and flushed with refreshed perspective Dark harassed by diffused hues tug seductive Dolphin derived, my smooth unphased by spiralling Saturated zones, ease honed, enamour never tiring Snorkel hole snorts water, puffs readily on its purification Imbibing combines giddy with clarity, senses' temptation My forehead flicked flirtatiously by wide flamingo flippers Splayed feathers fan surface, showcase dance floor shimmer Cabaret her costume, shakes crystal bead rainbow release Ravishing precise pirouettes prim pink princess completes Her curved beak caresses my porthole brain, rubs insistantly Into warm walnut shell weapon I'm swallowed quite quickly I spy through pomegranate seed eye, mirror lake unswayed Stilled kindly by wind's nonexistance, decision to travel made Climbed to bird's tiny tiara topped crest, covered in feathers Graceful lace tu- tu floats my aquatic future endeavour Bouyed weightless and grateful, flip draws no resistance Swim in S bend treasure, trip of sight resumed brilliance *** Spring has sprung!! - in Australia My branch beyond The tired pond of Earth, awakes Imminent Heaven (perhaps) *** A collapse of facts Flight of flamingo regalia Revel in place of waste - Mystery flush takes on its S bend 1st September 2020
