Prompt #41, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

February 16, 2011

Happy Valentines!

So, did you find a path to appreciate yourself with a valentine poem this week? Was it perhaps a little uncomfortable? But we think you’re worth the effort! Did you discover some new qualities about yourself you appreciate? We hope so. And also we think it’s more than enough if you simply let go being reticent about acknowledging the value you contribute into life. If you made it through our little challenge with a poem, please acknowledge yourself. And for everyone, no matter your result, thanks for playing with us! TIme now to say 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.

    Gosh it *is* difficult to write a Valentine poem to self (easier to splurge on chocolates…) So I cheated and wrote about a heroine’s pursuit of romance.

      My credentials were not verifiable on your blog, Pamela; so here’s what I wanted to say:

      Requiring wisdom as a gift suggests that you already have it in some measure.

      Good one.

        Thanks Tilly. I don’t know why blogger won’t accept

    My effort ended up as two variants – Sonnet and Worldly love. http://poetry-diary.com/
    A stimulating prompt – thanks.

    I wasn’t sure where to go with this one – but I figure that humor is the key!
