Prompt #107 Let’s get real

May 24, 2012

  

Let’s get real

say, can you spare a dime?

  
We Write Poems:
Alright, maybe that’s revealing my age.  How long’s it been since a dime would buy you anything!  And that’s just an opening jest.

Write a “practical” poem.  That’s the prompt, simple as simple can be!  Aren’t these common thoughts – that poems don’t “do anything”, or are lost in the clouds of thought, disconnected from the day to day workings of our lives.  While we might question the real truth of that, still, how much do we think of poems as “practical” useful things?  So there’s your challenge for this week.  How do you make a poem a practical useful thing?

But please, although we mean what the prompt asks of us, please please, there is also a hint of tongue-in-cheek, meaning have some fun if you find that route for your self.  Play.  Play is always good (dare we say, play is really even a very very practical thing).  Good practical fun for you!

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself. *** You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share. *** When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!). *** Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!
