Prompt #40, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

February 9, 2011

Triptych Relationship

So, to honor the Chinese New Year, the year of the rabbit, have you written your triptych relationship poem, beginning from those historic words of heaven, earth and man? This prompt at the core was offered as an opportunity to examine and define relationship in its broadest, most elemental form. However the means and specifics of the triptych are as ever totally open to your own perceptions and experience as you see to express. We eagerly now welcome your results.

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.

    I’m still asking, where did this come from?

    First time writing a triptych. What an exquisite form of poetry. I am taking suggestions, either on the poem, or on how to write a triptych. Thanks!

    This one had me stumped until I read Nicole’s: then I was terrified. Damn, woman, you’re good.
