Prompt #49, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

April 13, 2011

almost a poem

We asked you to write a poem about writing a poem. Mirror enough for you? More specifically, as a writer, what is your relationship with the process itself? Is it a familiar and comfortable experience, how complete do you feel within the process of finding and writing a poem? Emotional or intellectual perhaps? All in all, what is your personal place within the experience of writing? How do poems arrive on your plate to write?

This was your big chance to pull the curtain back and reveal the “great and powerful wizard behind the scene”. Now’s time to share your result. Maybe we will all get to see something more, how it is to be a writer in this life. Let’s take a look. Please now, post your links!

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.
