Prompt #79, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

November 9, 2011

When things go bust!

We Write Poems:  
Well, did the goblins break your peace? Or was it your own stumbling foot that found a tender toe to bump? Or where was that pothole that took you all in surprise (if only we’d been paying attention!) But this isn’t time for regrets, only acknowledgement of when things unexpectedly get broke. No “repairs” necessary! We all break things from time to time. What’s your incident you’d like to share?

And for you folks all busy with the November poem-a-day challenge, please no fret, and if you have something that don’t really fit the prompt – sssh, we won’t tell – go ahead and share whatever poem you wish with us! It’s your spirit that counts with us.

Tomorrow another one of our “community” 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.

    Interesting prompt. I wrote a last minute entry this morning. Please excuse the first draft . . . unloved gift

    Here are three short ones to consider. Any ideas for fixing them?

    A bit of an interpretation: Pra São Gonçalo

    Not exactly written to prompt and yet, methinks something is broken…
