Prompt #79 When things go bust

November 3, 2011

When things go bust!

We Write Poems:  
First, a big thanks to Irene for handling that last posting while my internet connection decided not to work for a while! And thus our prompt for this week (meaning, take what’s right in front of yourself). ~neil

So we’ve passed through when things go bump in the night – and when they do, sometimes they make something break!

Tell us about when life just seems to be going a different way than you! Maybe you stumbled and dropped your favorite bowl, shattering it on the floor. Or maybe you sat on your favorite model plane by accident, or something serious, like a lost wallet or relationship. (ouch!) Did you forget to feed the fish, or maybe you ran over the neighbor’s cat in the driveway. (ouch!) Maybe the dog really did eat your homework? You get the idea. Maybe no bigger than a burnt cookies in the oven, or maybe something that made you doubt the universe! The form and content is all up to you. We’re not even asking you to “fix” anything, just say “what is” as it is for you.

But we’ll still wish for you a good and happy week!

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!

    Deep within my heart
    I carry your image
    this is for eternity

    it shall be forever
    nothing will change
    nothing will burst
    for you are mine forever
