Monday Poetry Bus Ride is on Muse Swings


Our Poetry Bus Captain of the Fleet, TFE, has given ole Muse Swings the reins...er I mean wheel... for Monday March 28th. He just doesn't learn, does he.

I've thought of three - yes THREE (!) ways you may secure your bus ticket this week. Are you ready? Choose one for the road.

1) Write a poem with illustration. Write and draw to your heart's content, and bring it along. Here's what I have in mind:

(click to enlarge..or not)


2) Write a descriptive poem about an object/person/animal. Do not use the name of the object/person/animal in the title of the poem or in the poem. Let us guess based on your masterful visual description.



3) Write a poem about this picture. I think there may be lots of potential here.



So there you have it.




Straighten up that line, and let's all get on board with this!

All you have to do is come up with a poem, then leave a comment with your link information.


Our Riders of the Day:


Lola Mouse

Jeanne

The Bug

Helen

120 Socks

Izzy

Jinksy

Peter Goulding

Enchanted Oak

I've added a linky for you - pre-linky links are listed above. Enjoy your ride!

Good gracious! Great prompts, scary headmistress driver. I'm tempted by all three. But not by the headmistress.

Thanks Mrs Muse. Deliciously divine driverloing there. And I'm loving those coat hangers!

Jinksy said...

So no pressure to be extra inventive, then?! LOL. Thinking cap firmly on head, Jinksy retreats to a dark corner to await illumination...

Helen said...

Plenty here to thunk about! Ok, so I'm off for a thunk!

Hi Muse Swings, thanks for the great prompts and apologies in advance for my ticket this week, my 'muse' seemed to go missing on me. Anyhow creeping on board to grab the seat at the back!

Three cheers and thanks- I chose #2.
