Prompt #76, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

October 19, 2011

Falling apart

We Write Poems:  
Apokatas’tasis, the name used for an invocation in reference to good fortune hidden within apparent misfortune. So that was the theme to address in your poem this week. Try to celebrate something seemingly broken in your life with an eye towards what good such an event might then become or open as possibility.

If you desire any last minute refreshing, please read the original prompt again. This is a simple yet still challenging poem prompt. Whatever your result or poem, please be welcome to share it with us now.

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.

    Wrote this small poem this morning. Like the moral of finding good fortune hidden in misfortune.

    Loved this prompt, and it was productive in the sense of the emotion and ideas it produced, although this poem is still in draft. I can’t figure out yet what I want to tweak, but I know it needs some revision. This is no other way.

    Pretty sure this isn’t quite what the prompt was asking for, but I got a Lamentation from it, and I sort of like what I got.

    A little bit off the mark exactly for the prompt, but still close enough, I hope: Vermin

    It wanted to be written as prose but I forced it into a poetic shape!
