Prompt #88 Congregate

January 5, 2012


C o n g r e g a t e

a community poem prompt

We Write Poems:
Having completed our seasonal holiday transitions we now resume using our own community poem prompts.  In one respect transitions can be a distillation of the many into one, or as we’ll examine this week, what results can come from the gathering of individuals into a group.  This is what Marian Veverka asks us to consider now.  Tell us about what things a person can do as a member of a group or community.  Examples would include games, playing in a band or orchestra, singing in a chorus, playing sports, or even climbing mountains, sailing, doing acts of community service.  Select some specific group activity and write your poem with that as focus this week.  Perhaps describe how the group does what the individual cannot, the dynamics of a group, how the individual relates and acts within a group, or whatever other aspect of “group activities” as you wish to explore.

Thank you Marian for this idea.  Read her original posting here.

Welcome to our new year!

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!
