Verse First ~ Appetite

Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.

Today's notion?

APPETITE

It's July 3rd. On this day in 1908, MFK Fisher (one of my favorite writers) was born. Fisher wrote about life and lessons and love and lust, all while claiming to write about food. She had an appetite for living large and living well. Appetite. What images does the word conjure in your mind? Write about it, then refine it, and then share it with us.

Can't wait to see where your appetite takes you. ~ Kim

  3. I think I wrote a comedy. I nearly called it Independence Day. Thanks for MFK Fisher. The appetite I speak of has only to do with food for advancing thought.

    1. Sorry to confuse you Mary, Brian, Kim, etc--I realized as soon as I posted it that my little poem wasn't ready for consumption., Comedy is harder for me, go figure. So I withdrew it and reworked this longer one to the point.

  5. The prompt reminded me of a piece I wrote several weeks ago but never posted. Appetites can be dangerous things, or life altering elements.

  12. There are various kinds of appetites, and all may be voracious. I am sharing an old and, in its day, notorious piece about one kind of hunger.
