Coming up shortly will be our We Write Poems 100th poem prompt!  Not having an actual photograph of ourselves we’ve borrowed a little something from history so as to give a visual nod to the group of us here, our participant community!  Yet real enough following that is our token plaque, a “sign” of the times if you like, an informal collective of names for those who’ve shared and participated in the WWP poeming process.  Some of us have come and gone, some just touched the stone once, maybe twice, and some, you steadfast dedicated and appreciative folks, have fashioned this place into an enduring home for yourself and all of us.  We thank and appreciate you all!

That represents a whole lot of poems that have been birthed into this world!  And we can’t but think that’s a good measure of what by “the better nature of our angels” ought be given into life.  We celebrate our shared participation here.  Please be welcome to comment and say hello if you wish.  Our next actual prompt will follow soon.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
  with your one wild and precious life?”

       Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems

    Congratulations to WWP, its contributors, readers and all inspired by the prompts! Hoping for more and more happy hundreds 🙂

    PS Yesterday I wasn’t able to comment even once, and I made at least 3 attempts… Any possible explanation for that? Has anyone else had the same predicament?

    • March 29, 2012 12:36 am

      Thank you Mariya. Happy to have you here with us.

      Such is the internet perhaps regards the trouble with comments. Word Press is one of the better behaved services I think, and especially WP to WP blogs. Were you already logged into your own blog before coming to WWP? Think I had some minor problems that way in the past. Now I just log in to my own blog before doing much else.

      Thanks again, neil

        Thank you, Neil – it worked fine the next day. There are such days every now and then 🙂
        Happy poeming!

    Hearty congratulations to one of the best poetry prompt sites available to us. Yeah! And thank you. 😀

    The photograph and the names was such a wonderful touching idea, such a great photograph, too! Thank you very much for making me part of the class! I love this site. I love that there’s a whole week from the day the prompt is posted to the It’s Post Your Poems Day! The prompts are inspiring, always different. The poems are amazing.
    Congratulations to We Write Poems! The 100th prompt comes just in time for the poetry month, how did you do that? 🙂 Thanks again!
    Live for the Love of it,
    The Happy Amateur

      Yes, such excellent timing! Synchronicity, it’s called. Did the plaque have everyone squinting their eyes just to look for their names? Yay, I found mine! Photo is so very cute. I just love the idea of birthing poems via prompts. Such energy! And the answer to that familiar burning question? Why, to write more poems of course… amongst other things, she mumbles.

    • March 30, 2012 1:13 am

      Yes, I was thinking the same. It’s so cute to find one’s name under the pic!

    Congrats! Thanks for including me.

    Congratulations to We Write Poems for its 100th prompt! And thanks for the appreciation. It was fun seeing my name up there. (Now to come up with a suggestion for a new prompt idea.)

    So glad to be reminded of WWP again (by a friend). Somehow I thought you were one of the sites that retired. But I will be returning. Congratulations on your 100th prompt! Actually this Mary Oliver quote is a pretty good one!

    *\o/* Hip Hip Hooraaaayyyyy!!!!

    Congratulations on the 100th prompt. I’ve not been around for anywhere near that number, but am grateful to have found you and to be included in the number of names (and faces 😉 ) shown above. You’ve been a gracious host for those who have passed by the pages found here. Thank you.

    Congratulations on the 100th prompt! It is fun to join such a vibrant and creative group of contributors! Thank you for hosting!

  10. March 30, 2012 10:28 am

    Happy and proud to be included in the list. Poetry, ideas, connections, even friends…so many wonderful things have sprung from this garden.

  11. March 30, 2012 6:21 pm

    WWP100 and still going strong….a wonderful “place” to exchange poems, receive encouragement and touch base with other poets. It really seems like a family to me….THANKS to ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. I just do not know how you found an old photo of me in grade one….amazing.

  12. April 1, 2012 1:58 am

    Thanks to the “us” of us all. Sincerely said.

    And to close these many thanks, thanks to my quiet but not unheard poem partner here at WWP, my friend Irene. She keeps me balanced and in a good better humor of thought. Also sincere.


    • April 1, 2012 4:56 am

      Quiet but not unheard, is that an oxymoron? I’m happy to be a poetic servant I guess, and to keep up the good humor, yes!

  13. April 2, 2012 11:38 am

    glad to have stopped by …. even tho i haven’t participated that much this year always look forward to the weekly prompts challenge…… congrats on 100 prompt…. a great group of poets….
