Prompt #109, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

June 13, 2012


Finding pearls!

“not a cento poem poem”

We Write Poems:  
Did you notice any difference this time, writing a “cento, not-cento” poem from sentences of another’s prose, rather than a poem instead? How was this experience for you? Same author, but did you select text from more than only one novel or story of theirs? Did you use more longer sentences to change emphasis, draw attention to what was going one with this prompt challenge?

This prompt is a little aside from the ordinary, but not by that much, not really. Do please remember to give credit to the author from whose writting you borrowed some, the did it public again; please name the book(s) as well. Time now to share your poetic results!

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.

    Easier to combine sentences than single lines, but I say it’s still a cento

    I found my pearls in two guidebooks about San Miguel de Allende:

    Six from San Miguel

    Six More from San Miguel

    Love “cut and paste” poetry, but there is some thought put into finding the right puzzle pieces!

    Julie Doherty Meade’s guidebook to San Miguel de Allende inspired me to write:

    Three from San Miguel

    My lines are compiled of prose by the author John Wright Follette.
    Thank you!!

    Challenging prompt due to sentences, rather than poetry lines. I did enjoy it, and mine is from Joyce Carol Oates,
    Mudwoman. Thanks.

    Hi! First time here with a “quilt” to share.

    I actually did write something and added to it just a tad. But I am waiting on word from my friend the author for permission to use the work. As the book clearly states to ask before copying anything. I’ll try to come in and read a bit though as this type of challenge well for me is a challenge. 🙂

    Hello! I’m new here, but previously posted at Big Tent Poetry and ReadWritePoem. I’ve been away from posting for a while now, so this was a lovely way to dip my toe back into the water.

    Permission Granted…So please enjoy:
    Hope to come back and read a few after my morning routine…
