Prompt #92, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

February 8, 2012


Big Shoes

a community poem prompt

We Write Poems:  
Says Donald Harbor, I have the foolish dream that one day there will be no discrimination against race, creed, or color or physical for of being. One hand, here’s a worthy intent, then in the other hand, the way the world seems to be torn asunder so frequently. Really, we didn’t ask you to address this statement in any particular manner whatsoever. However here’s the arena in which we live – so what did you have to say, in the shape of a poem of course.

In the same spirit here offered, appreciation for the way it is, for differences rather than opposition, so too whatever form your response, you are welcome here to express yourself as you deem fit. We now welcome and await…

Thank you again, Donald Harbour, for presenting us with this challenging prompt.

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.

    Didn’t really think I’d have anything at all for this prompt (although maybe you’ll think I didn’t!). Remembered a poem by Lucille Clifton, then scribbled this one here…

    Perhaps a different take than intended by the prompt; an older piece.

    Poets are visionaries; sights always set on their dreams. A poet sees things.

    Mine is up, but it’s not UP.
