Prompt #108, It’s Post Your Poems Day!
Face up to it!
The Body, a series, part 3
We Write Poems:
Whenever there was a pet around in my life, it has always been a cat. Most cats when they look, they look at your hands – that part of you that brings them food or a friendly stroke, or maybe just sometimes, they’ll look at your feet – that part of a giant human which they need attend, not to get stepped upon. And rarely, most rarely and by only a few, those that would look upon your face, look you right in your eyes, like they were aware of another being there. So faces, yes faces count, and it is there that we humans look when we want to know and understand someone else.
So this week we asked you to join in that regard, face to face, and this time – Write a poem about your face. What’s the story we might see revealed there? Maybe even a story that your face wants to tell for itself. How does your face carry you into this world we share? What are the whispers, what are the howls? So that’s the topic in the broadest sense, and like always, we invite and hope you’ll surprise us some in how you dare respond. Time now to face forward and have your say!
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!
