Amusing Verse … I Hope

One of my favorite poetry prompt sites, One Single Impression, has asked its poet-participants to propose word prompts for upcoming editions. I suggested the word “amuse,” which will be used next week, starting September 25th. Here’s a limerick and haiku I wrote for the occasion:

Amusing Verse … I Hope
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I try to amuse when I write,
In my quest to pen verse that has bite.
But sometimes my muse
Lets me down. Yes j’accuse!
I suspect that it does it for spite.


Poetry prompt sites
inspire, amuse, bring friends,
awaken muses.

    Thank you Madeleine (spelled it correctily this time!).
    Your verses amused me as per my definition, if I leave with a smile on my face, I’m amused. :)

    I hope you will be amused with mine also. It won’t be up until Midnight CDT tomorrow night. Could be later.
