Prompt #73, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

September 28, 2011

I smell poem pie!

We Write Poems:  
How’s your poem pie?  Yousei Hime invited us to write a poem filled with scent!  Now the poem didn’t need be “about” scent, yet scent should perform as an important component informing the content or essential quality of the poem.  Scent is indeed one of the most quiet yet evocative of our physical senses.  Did scent set the background of your poetic scene, engage emotional perspective, or further define some single element within the poem for you?  (Just a few of the many possibilities.)

Time now to share your result, let us read (or smell !!) how aroma plays its’ role in your poem please.  And thank you again Yousei for your contribution to our poem 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 tried twice to comment on your blog, but the catchpa defeated me. My attempts may be in your spam box.

      I had the same problem with the catchpa. I really enjoyed the poem, the trail of scent throughout. I’m glad you enjoyed the prompt. Thanks for participating.

        Hi Yousie! Thank you for the beautiful prompt, and thanks for your kind comments.

      Hope my comment got through as well. Wonderful poem! Subtle and perfect.

    Somethings stay with you like beautiful sunsets, birth of a child, the cuddling squeaks of warm puppies or “That smell”.

      Marrian, I can’t get your link to work. Can you post it again. I would love to read your “Lessons from the air.”

    I didn’t quite do what the prompt asked, but it was a starting point.

    Great prompt idea! Really enjoyed this one!

    I enjoyed this and I have pie, ViV!

    I went a bit sugary on this. Childhood memories can do that sort of thing, I suppose.

    Don’t know what this is, but it does have smells in it.

    Everyone! Thank you so much for your participation. I really enjoyed reading your poems and am proud to have had a tiny part in sparking them. Here is the link to mine (I just barely like it, but it will have to do. I’m leaving to visit family, and there are too many things to be done.) Write well and I hope to be back next week. 🙂

    I didn’t know whether t be romantic or earthy so I combined both.
