Prompt #29, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

November 24, 2010

S w i m m i n g

How was the water down by the creek or in your pool? How was swimming for you? Literal memory or metaphor? Swimming changes our physical relationship with gravity, with the broader world. Yet there is also an emotional quality that goes to the toes of tadpoles in a creekside hollow. So where did you toes and thoughts splash into the pool? Now’s the time to say!

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.

    On special nights I love to visit the old swimming hole and sit on the bank, waiting.
