Prompt #86, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

December 28, 2011

A Natural History of My (room)

We Write Poems:  
Did you find some place, some comfy chair, to settle into this week and deliver us a taste of history from inside your home?  We asked you to write a poem entitled “A Natural History of My (room)“, selecting whatever specific room you desired and given in a very personal sense.  So what room did you decide to describe? A room where you feel the most at home, maybe a room where you most feel connection with family, or perhaps a room that challenges your perceptions of place? Is your poem more direct physical description of the environment or evocative of personal memories gathered in place? We look forward to reading your results.

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.

    It’ll be terribly interesting to read about each other’s rooms won’t it?

      Marian, your link doesn’t work. Can you copy paste the actual link from your poem.

    I piggy-backed this prompt with the “In-Form” prompt (the Dizain this week) over at to come up with this one:

    Coming back to spread my wings. I collect media. Books, movies, albums, tapes, CD’s and DVDs. Is was only natural to recount the history of my library.
