Prompt #51, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

April 27, 2011


We Write Poems:  
Write a yin/yang poem based on any kind of pairings that are complementary. A few examples include Black/White, Sweet/Sour, Hands/Feet, Presence/Absence, or we were invited to create and write about other pairings as we saw fit to illustrate. Even the format of the poem might be a demonstration of such pairings itself. Now please share your result with us!

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.

    Ahhh! I wish I could work formatting for wordpress. This should be a double diamante but I have had to content myself with what you see. I tackled sun/moon.

    Written for day 29 of NAPOWRIMO, this piece is sparked by the devastating power of our planet, as exhibited chillingly in the past couple days throughout the southeast… Unfazed
