The following poem was inspired by the word “bumfuzzle”, which was part of the One Word Poetry Challenge workshop, hosted by Jen Lowry, which Tish Bouvier and I participated in Yesterday. Each day I’ll post one poem prompted by this event and challenge you with a new word at random, so read this post in its entirety for your special challenge.
There once was a little wuzzle
Whose name was Bumfuzzle
His body was covered with hair,
Though he wasn’t a bear.
What was this wuzzle
Whose name was Bumfuzzle?
Bumfuzzle Was a dust bunny,
Who sneezed and coughed and walked real funny
He could always be found
Sticking his nose in a jar of honey.
Today’s challenge set a timer for three minutes and write a poem using the word “mask” as your prompt. Be sure to post your poem on your own blog and pingback to this post, so I can see what you come up with.
