Prompt #88, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

January 11, 2012

C o n g r e g a t e

We Write Poems:  
Marian Veverka invited us to think and write about the experience of a person within a group or community activity. Were you a drum major or cheerleader perhaps? No? Alright, probably not many of us were. Then how about music or dance or sport or social service community activities? How was that experience for you? What might you have seen or learned that you wouldn’t have being alone instead? Remember too, even right here – this is a group activity of poetic desire! Time now to share.

Thank you Marian!

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.

    Hi everyone! I only recently returned to writing poetry after a very busy few months, and just discovered this blog, so I didn’t follow the prompt this time… It’s still about a shared activity, though, in some sense at least. 🙂

    Yea, this is kind of self-referential.

    Such a place exists. All are welcomed. Joined in community in poetic pursuits. It sounds something like this:

    Have you huddled before a fire with strangers and what did you gain from the experience. We all take something away when we are “Bonded before the hearth”.

    I wouldn’t want to write poetry without the safety of a net…

    My “slightly” obscure approach to the prompt.

    more of an ‘anti’ community’ rant I guess….

      Why wallow in thinking you’re unable to write anymore. Write till the end I say, then we’ll have a happy bohemian poetry circle. (*Wayne, comment couldn’t stick to your blog.*)

    I finally got around to responding to this prompt in a haiku containing the line “as the last clouds congregate.”

    And I’m even later than magical … but here it is; a different take again on congregating at my IN MY NEXT LIFE blog

    wrote a poem called congregating tribes
