Prompt #83, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

December 7, 2011

All Good Things

We Write Poems:  
Nicole suggested this week we write about an “ending”, be it personal or of a wider cultural change, then continue and look beyond into what future “beginning” might germinate from that ending. Is something changed from one state into another, or a void created awaiting something new to take that place? Such is the question Nicole put upon our plates. Time now to reveal your results to us.

Thanks again to Nicole Nicholson for our community prompt this week!

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.

    An inadequate response to a great prompt: I may have another go at this when I have put the marzipan on the Christmas cake.

    A bit twisted but the idea was prompted by “ending” :

    An unexpected result, even as the “ending” is yet incomplete.

    I am not the words

    An appropriate prompt because, who doesn’t have the end of the year feeling?

    may all good things come to those who believe

    Apparently mine is sad. I didn’t think it was, really. Anyway, it’s a videopoem I already had the idea for, finally got motivated to put it together based on this prompt. 🙂

    I’ve written a haiku about a cemetery in Mexico, incorporating the phrase “all good things.”

    So, ending and a beginning is it? I just finished reading a book about the composition of the universe. Sorry, I been influenced by cosmology and I couldn’t help but let you suffer too! Here’s my through down: “Nothing ever ends”.

      Yes, Viv….it should have been throw down but….think about a through down for just a minute. Freud would love it.
