Prompt #25, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

October 27, 2010

The Wizard of Oz

Do you have your Halloween costume in hand? Something from The Wizard of Oz, that’s what we asked of you, then write your poem from inside that chosen mask. Did you find some shy voice now brought into light? Perhaps a person, creature or even inanimate magical thing, seen in ways we’ve not even imagined yet? Did you begin new “conversations” from that character’s point of view? We’re eager to be pleased and surprised with your results! Now’s time to share your poems!   Boo!

Don’t have a poem yet? Perhaps read a few done by others here, be inspired. There’s still plenty of time to discover a poem for yourself!

Leave the links to your poems in the comments of this post, then go visit your fellow writers’ sites and read their work. Remember to leave only positive comments in the spirit of sharing and not critiquing. We look forward to reading your poems!


Please remember to include a link with your blog poem post that links right back to here, this “Post Your Poems Day”, so that others reading your poem can also share in this community poem experience – maybe even someone new to We Write Poems!

If you are new to WWP, please be welcome to look around and read. The full prompt description you can find under “Recent Posts” on the top right of our page.

    Oops! That was from my alter ego. But it’s still me, and still at Raven’s Wing Poetry.

    Not exactly Oz, could I say Oz-inspired?

  8. October 27, 2010 7:48 am

    I am not at all pleased with this one. But I did give it a try.
