Prompt #33, Say what you want

December 16, 2010


Say what you want…

Tis the season so they say, leastwise in part… so tell us this week “what you want”. Another simple concept standing under the tree, words in hand. Let your thoughts drift onto this, explore, something more perhaps than that “doggie in the window” or a new pair of shoes. “Want” has some implication of what you don’t already have, so there’s a description of yourself drawn in shadowed terms not of your own, like drawing from the outside in. A close reach or far, or best yet, unexpected perhaps. Take some time to play with this notion. Needn’t be remotely logical (or it can), but what a delight if you surprised even yourself by what you observe comes walking your way to speak. It could be as simple as a list poem, or melodic, some foreign tune. We’re not asking for world problems to be solved, rather more personal, unreasonable, intimate of your nature.
I want…

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself.    ***    You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share.    ***    When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!).    ***    Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!

    The word ‘want’ means ‘desire’ and it means ‘need’. I hope I’ve tightroped between the two
