Prompt # 10: It’s Post Your Poems Day!

July 14, 2010

Last Thursday I asked you to to write about an object from many points of view. What object did you choose to write about? A teacup? A mitten? A fork?

Leave links to your poems in the comments section of this post, then go read each other’s poems about objects. I look forward to seeing what you came up with this week!

As always, as we are a community not a critique group, keep your comments positive and encouraging. Thanks!

    Close enough Mallery! I wrote about a kitchen object.

    Nice prompt! I got to combine my love of found objects and poetry

    My object is:
    timely interventions

    I view prompts as places to start from, to use as an impetus for the writing of a poem. I started with viewing an old gravestone and then went to where the poem took me.

    After considering several different objects I went with this one! Thanks for an interesting prompt!

    I think I broke something the blind elephant describes the parlor

    Mine is something I’ve considered before the prompt. (Although I don’t really run through a drill….that is an embellishment!) Thanks for being here!

    Attention is some unpredictable when I’m sick, and so…

      Don’t know if my comment got through the Blogsome filter.
      (If not, and short) A beautifully intimate and expressive poem Uma. (I’ll check later to see if my comment got through.)

    I have been going through a series of root canals, on top of the fact that it’s just been too damned “July” to write — but I am looking forward to reading. To offer some contribution, I encore a piece here that I wrote back in April about a cane – if anyone is curious: His Cane

    Ah, good to be back — anxious to settle in this evening and read how you all responded to this prompt. Here’s my effort (great prompt!):

      Hi Marian, glad you managed to post.

      I enjoyed the memories of the pitcher and your conversational style engages me.

      (trouble leaving comment on your blog.)

    I posted this earlier this morning, but it doesn’t look like it ‘took,’ so I am trying it again:

    Thanks, I spend so much time looking at it, writing about it was easy.
