Prompt #37 Conversational

January 13, 2011



The idea for this prompt is to write a poem that is a conversation between two people. It can be imaginary, or one based on an actual experience. You might write about having a conversation with some great literary figure, or a movie star. Perhaps a person you have seen around, but have never had a chance to really get to know. A conversation between the angel on your right shoulder, and the devil on your left. A one-sided conversation with God, a long lost relative, an old friend you haven’t seen in twenty years, or the neighbor’s dog. If the other participant is silent, you will have to find a way to express what he/she might say in reply. Then when you’re done, next week let us listen in!

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!
