Prompt #67, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

August 17, 2011

Write a “moving” poem!

We Write Poems:  
We hope you found your “poem walk” productive for you this week! While ultimately we’ve got to sit down to write our poems, the poems at source relate to the greater world outside of ourselves, albeit in a wide variety of ways, both direct and indirect. So this week we invited you to more directly, immediately connect your poem with the real and physical world by taking (notebook in hand) a walk outside to begin the process of writing itself. What difference might this make for us in what or how we write? Did you feel some changes in the poem writing process for yourself? Please include some process notes with your poem posting to tell us more explicitly about your experience if possible. We look forward to reading your poems now!

The next prompt will return again to more of our poem community suggested prompts!

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 sidestepped a little, but the spirit was there.

    Since it’s just about impossible for me to sit still, almost everything I write is written while I’m moving. Here’s my Game Limerick. Thanks!

    Walking on the beach on a foggy California Morning.
    Hope you enjoy the smell of salt air.

    While walking down my quaint neighborhood and just absorbing the hum drum of a small town life…this poem worked its way through me:

    sorry for the delay…but wanted to share my work. 🙂

    I don’t know what this is or how it came to be…Editor!
