Prompt #39 Bucket List

January 27, 2011


Bucket List

Have you seen the movie? A Bucket List is a list of all the things you have wanted to do, see, and experience, that you have not yet done in your life. So, step one, make a list. Then choose one or two, or maybe more, of these items from your list and create a poem about those adventures. Describe the desires, sights or experiences. You may want to use your list for the poem, but even better, your feelings for how or why they are important to yourself. Let your list take you wherever it will: foreign countries, the great wonders of the world, unexpected modes of travel, or maybe something possible right in your own home town. Big or small, as you wish – scale is all your choice. You might want to write why these things remain out of reach, or what plans you have to make them more real for you. Whatever you find and write, bring it back for “sharing time” next Wednesday on Post Your Poem Day. Have fun!

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!

    Here’s my bucket list response. Reminded me again of how weak I am at planning anything!

    This is my bucket list poem (the urls on my blog have gotten weird)

    By the way, I have been thinking you might get more response if you did not have people wait a week to post but could have people post anytime in the days following presentation of the prompt. I can never recall which site posts when and then I can’t recall which site the prompt came from!
