Prompt #99, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

March 28, 2012


Bedtime tales

what to tell the children now?

We Write Poems:  
Prince from a frog or princess from a lump of coal? Mere shadows for what a fairy tale might have to say. Neither does every tale begin once upon a time nor conclude happily ever after for all the participants. Some stories rely upon the process of the tale more than the characters themselves. Or perhaps you engaged in character development, got us inside the desires and motivations to more directly experience the story unfold. Such tales run the breadth and width of story telling. Our prompt asked you to write your own fairy tale. Time now please to share your poem with us no matter the result – we’ll crack open any egg you wish.

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.

    Happy, happy, happy to post today. Be warned, it is considerably longer than my usual haiku.

    Okay kiddies and Stella Queen of the Fairies. I’m out of town so this will have to do for your bedtime story. I’ll read everyones when I get back this weekend. Cheers

    Fairy Tales, to me, really have a magical, believe in bigger, impossible things feeling to me and so my story led me in a fun direction. Really such a wonderfully, invigorating prompt endeavor. Thank you!

    Here’s mine…a fairytale for ever kid’s soul.

    You know those Grimm’s tales that are about a page long and don’t make much sense?

    Hope this one isn’t too vague. 😉

    I absolutely love showing the other side of fairy tales. Not necessarily the villains viewpoint, but another angle. Thanks for a chance to do what I love!

    Hi, again. Obviously my first post didn’t quite make it. So, here it is again:

    Nicely done, what I’ve read thus far. Me, shamefaced, couldn’t flesh out the only idea that came to me. So, only in the interest of participation IS here what landed on me this week instead. A slightly mythic thing perhaps, and very vaguely related I suppose, the way all our words misrepresent the actual experience.

    Let’s see if it will work today. Pity, as no one will come to read ;-(
