Prompt #107, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

May 30, 2012


Let’s get real

say, can you spare a dime?

We Write Poems:  
What did you find to do that was “practical” to do with your poem this week?  We know, we know, it was kind of a jest, an invitation to step aside from the poetic “usual”, but you see – not all jest, but rather a challenge to find something new to do with a poem we hope.  Write a “practical” poem, we asked.  How did you get your poem “down to earth”, something a part of your common day, a practical useful thing?  You understand this was also an invitation to allow whimsy permission to come out and play.  What result?  Time to share.  We await, all thumbs and eagerly!

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.

    A practical poem? Well, I wrote a whimsical one in which I told the reader…a joke. 😉

    Not quite to prompt, but perhaps it could be considered about a practical moment in life: Moving Day

    Life in the day of a poem….this was a pleasure to think about, thank you for the prompt!

    Practical is hard to define in terms of a poem for me… here’s a couple on the experience of living life:

    I have been a tad busy with helping my son move and watching my grandson. My offerings are pieces which some of you may have already read as they were written for Rosemary Mint’s Monday Melting and The Sunday Whirl. So you don’t have to read them again if you’ve already done so. Lets’ Get Real – dealing with an adult bully is sadly very real.
    This one link goes to the first piece and there is a link at the bottom to a follow up piece – Thanks.

    English as a language has been quite a trouble for me to handle. I am a writer (a budding one!) but still my write-ups reach the editor with some errors here and some there… so this my ode to you English language….

    I don’t think I could get much more practical than a recipe!

    Drafty this one I think, and cause I wanted to change boats mid-stream, so staying with how things began instead as time has since evaporated for me.
