Prompt #50 First lines!

April 14, 2011


First lines

Continued greetings to all participating in the April poem-a-day NaPoWriMo. This week something simple for your plate. Begin a poem with either of these two lines…

I’m willing to eat… (continue as you wish), or
I do my laundry when… (same as before).

Choose either line as interests you. What you do with the rest of the poem is totally up to you. Be as literal, fanciful or abstract as you wish. Think of it as “recess” time for your writing pen! 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!
