Prompt #108 Face up to it!

May 31, 2012


Face up to it!

The Body, a series, part 3

We Write Poems:
We’ve asked you to write a poem about your feet, then fingers, so what next?  Well, your face of course!  Getting closer to home?  Don’t you feel more like “who you are” is more about your face?  And while we might question the real truth of that… still, we’d bet you may have some feelings that way.  Write a poem about your face.

How able are you to tell us the “story” of your face?  Can you be impartial, observantly honest, or is that even important anyway?  What might your face want to tell us about your life if only it had a voice?  But then, oh yes, it does!  Will you let it speak?  Or perhaps your face would like to share its own point of view about your days right now, how it is to “face the day”?  Or what about family?  How does your face carry forward your family spirit?  While your face has always been you, your very own, yet how much has it changed since you were a child?  These are only the merest hints of how you might approach this poem prompt – and as ever, please go ahead, surprise us with your own personal and poetic take upon this prompt!  There is certainly no one single or “right” response to this prompt.  Your face, your choice!

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!
