Prompt #12: It’s Post Your Poems Day!

July 28, 2010

How did the past, present, and future fare for you this week? Mary prompted us to write a poem of three stanzas, beginning with “yesterday,” “today,” and “tomorrow.” Post your links to your poems in the comments and we’ll all come read your poems! Remember our commitment to supportive community, and only leave positive comments on others’ work.

Check back here tomorrow for a new prompt!

    Been “thinking” too much of late (mud by another name), so now something to refresh all that “stuff”.

    I just “knew” I like the prompt though I’ve no idea how the poem’s going to turn out!

      Mary, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but was unable to. Just wanted you to know, I said:

      Oh, sad, so sad…, but beautifully represented. Can we go back to yesterday? Please? 🙂

    well — you know how I am with directions.
    I did the yesterday-today-tomorrow thing, but not exactly in 3 stanzas!

    Thanks Mary!

      Nice, Marian.
      Canning tomatoes may just be the essence of summer. I like the crickets, too.

      Very nice Marian!
      I am still unable to leave a comment on the blog ugh!

    Here’s mine, a little bleak, but to the prompt.

    Thanks for the challenge! Here’s my response:

    I am late. I actually posted this on Monday or Tuesday, meaning to post the link on Weds but I got lost somewhere on the way to linking. UGH!

    Thank you to all of you who have done my prompt. It was wonderful to read the resulting poems!

    I’ve been trying an experiment where I create perfectly rhymed, iambic couplets from the Twitter updates of celebrities!

    It’s got the same intense technical “work” of poetry – and the same satisfaction of expression. But it feels strange at the same time. Check me out and let me know what you think!
