Prompt #102, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

April 18, 2012


Poem spirits!

We Write Poems:  

We are continuing our usual weekly poem prompts during this April NaPoWriMo event.  Those of you who respond to these prompts are welcome to post your results wheresoever you wish.  Post them here or to the NaPoWriMo post, or even both.  We are not counting poems, rather only encouraging you to write and share with us here in our WWP community space.

Our shared poem prompt challenge for this week was – write a “spiritual poem”.  You get to define what spirit means.  You get to say how your poem addresses making this expression for yourself.  As always, we love being surprised by some unexpected angle or point-of-expression.  No matter what you think you know, or don’t, we’re sure there was some understanding and expression already awaiting you.  Time now to share your result!

Good continued April poeming to you all.  And we hope writing for you is not just about making any daily quota, but more, a real learning experience!

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 haven’t been writing so much this month (or maybe it’s just that I notice more because of all you fast rabbits out there!). And you know how we tell ourselves “wise” things about life, but then comes a moment when it gets really real, and finally you do understand. Writing this poem was about “readiness” for me (maybe read that as a willingness to listen). And I heard this poem clearly “arrive”. (simply how I’d rather be me)

    do pockets dream of being inside out?

    This is how it arrived for me, what spirit means.

    People are spirits after all

    Here is my take on the prompt:a spiritual.

    Sort of spiritual, sort of not: Henosis

    George Costanza answers God in Eden: [pause] Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon…

    This poem is probably a little more to the point….or maybe not.

    Well, I got started on this late and took a light-hearted approach!
