a community poem prompt

We Write Poems:
As they say, any safe “harbour” in a storm! These times, these lives, this world, there are charms yet also toils and tolls. And we’ll quote Donald Harbour directly for this week’s poem prompt.

I have the foolish dream that one day there will be no discrimination against race, creed, or color or physical form of being. That all humans and creatures of the earth will respect one another and live in peace and harmony. Then I woke up from the dream to face the reality of the human existence. My prompt is about world civil rights. Yeah I know, heavy stuff but then if not you who will wear These Shoes?

What shoes might you see for us to wear, what understanding gained, what resultant appreciation to be given breath? That’s our poem challenge and thanks to Donald Harbour for this prompt!

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!
