Prompt #87, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

January 4, 2012

Begin at the Bottom

The Body, a series, part 1

We Write Poems:  
First in a series about The Body which we’ll continue from time to time over the months to come this year. Write a poem about your feet. That’s the prompt we suggested for this week. Did you find yourself out on a limb or was it a perfect fit? Feet are your literal and figurative connection with gravity and our planet here, however there are many ways to view and write about this body boundary and connection. Please now share with us your result.

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.

    FEET????? Feet! Feet. See how you can say one word and convey so much meaning. Anyway I’d rather write about why “My dogs won’t be quiet”. Love ’em but sometimes I could do without ’em. Have a great day poets.

    Happy new year! Here’s a feet limerick from last year:
    I can’t always rely on my feet.
    When I dance, they say “Please take a seat!”
    Though I stretch ‘em and bend ‘em,
    I can’t seem to mend ‘em.
    Of foot, I confess, I’m not fleet.
    Feet Trouble Afoot.

    I hope you don’t mind reading something I wrote about feet earlier. When I saw the prompt, I couldn’t get past this one:

    Following Karen’s lead, I searched high and low for this as I knew I had written something that was perfect for this prompt but it took me awhile to find it (my newly retired husband has promised to design a data spreadsheet for me so I can keep track of my poems; at first I thought “no” but after today? I’m thinking, “oh yeah” … In any case – at a blog I’m just starting to re-use, “The Way Eye See It” found at this url – hopefully you’ll find Feet to Feet.

    Got here late, loved the prompt so I’m posting my poem anyway!
