Prompt #95, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

February 29, 2012


The Other side of Nature

alternate descriptions

We Write Poems:  
What did you find in your left-hand pocket this week? What descriptive words you or we might not so commonly expect? The prompt… describe an element of nature AND do so using images not the usual or obvious for that subject. Maybe the tone would be simply shifted as in describing a forest of trees in hues of red. Don’t say round if describing the moon. Or perhaps the point of view, the “poetic observer” was someone, something other than yourself… how might an bug describe a tree? Whatever your result we’re eager now to read your poem in response. Hope you had some fun with this!

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.

      I think people still win in the arrogance dept.! I love your poem-it made me giggle too!

      A lot of very cool imagery in this! The sea reminded me of myself when I’m awake with indigestion!

    An interesting exercise involving quite a lot of lateral thinking.

      So visual, Rinkly, I love your descriptions, especially when it’s bursting into sunlight, gasping. A joy to read, thank you! Not sure my comment would “take,” over there. 🙂

    I don’t think I approached this prompt correctly, I will blame it on the flu and not enough sleep. But I did write something…

    “Cool Air, Pigeons an Sunrise”

    This was such a joy, roused up thoughts I have about a favorite place. i really enjoyed this prompt, got me thinking outside of the box, thank you!

    Tried to look at the sea from a different perspective – not sure if this ends up where the prompt intended, but I started there!
