Prompt #37, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

January 19, 2011


Speak, speak! Show us now your conversational poem. Was it a conversation between two people, or did you leave our species aside? Was it a street corner chat, or something serious, friend or foe, external or whispers inside of thoughts? Well lighted or shadowed, a private discussion now revealed? Now’s the time, and we’re all ears for you!

May we please now listen in?

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.

    Well, I just made a poem out of a conversation between reader and author, past and present. It is a fake conversation, clearly.

    I am at the end of a three week cold. Having taken bottles of over the counter remedies my minds eye has been having a nighttime dream fest. This poem is the out come of one of those nocturnal complications and a bit of the attending conversation (very shortened version).

    A quasi-conversation: Love Letters

    This limerick conversation is from one of my recent Limerick-Offs:
    “I’m sorry I had an affair,”
    Said a man to his wife in despair.
    “Please forgive me — I’m bad.”
    She said, “Never, you cad.”
    “I warned you before — I don’t share.”
