It’s Post Your Poems Day!
When I was in preschool, we had a party each spring in the playground of the school with face-painting, games, crafts, and hay rides, as well as my favorite activity–the cardboard maze. For weeks before the party, a group of parents would volunteer their time to construct a giant maze out of cardboard boxes. Although I didn’t end up writing about cardboard mazes, working with the “boxes” prompt this week brought back some great memories of them!
Did you play with boxes this week? Find something hidden away in a box that you had forgotten about? Explore the meaning of an empty box? Perhaps you let out your inner child and turned a refrigerator box into a castle or a spaceship. Or maybe while free-writing about boxes, some other idea jumped out at you that you just had to write about. Whatever you wrote about this week, now is the time to share it with the world! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your poem on your own blog, or if you don’t have a blog, you can leave your entire poem in the comments.
Once you leave your own comment, be sure to visit everyone else’s links. After all, we’re a community, and one of the best ways a community of writers can support its members is to read and comment on one another’s work. As we read each other’s poems, let’s remember why we created this community. We are a group of poets who seek inspiration, challenges, and a social community of other poets. If you comment on another poet’s work, please do so thoughtfully and positively – we are not a critique group!
