Prompt #87 Begin at the Bottom

December 29, 2011


Begin at the Bottom

The Body, a series, part 1

We Write Poems:
Ready to begin a new year? Let’s start with a physical foundation, and in fact the way we daily connect and ground our life with the planet we inhabit.  Write a poem about your feet.  Simple as that! Throw this idea into the pot and see what boils up for you. How you construct your observation and poem is all for your creative whim to define.  How do your feet feel about your life? Care to have a conversation with your feet? Do your feet have favorite shoes or socks? What’s the history of your feet? What goals do your feet have for the coming new year?  Sublime, divine, or mere folly – your choice here.

This prompt will be the first in a series, The Body, that we will come and revisit from time to time over the next months.  So if you’re itching for another body part – patience please; we’ll get to more.

Beginning with the new year we’ll also return to our community prompts!

Happy New Year to all.

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!
