Prompt #144, It’s Post Your Poems Day!
In your own words
We Write Poems:
So, was this prompt simply cake for you, or challenging? We hid the answers right inside your very own words, close as your fingertips. Or is that precisely what made the poem prompt all the more complex, rubbing your eyes repeatedly to see what you already know?
We asked you to identify personally meaningful words for you. The measure was simply, what words do you use most often? Identified either by frequency or emotional impact to yourself. Easy? Then choose one (maybe two, if you like making things harder!) and write a poem that shares something of your special relationship with that word. That relationship might be something unexpected and uncommon. More than fine! That’s exactly what we invited you to discover.
