Prompt #111 The naming of things

June 21, 2012


The naming of things!

We Write Poems:

Ready to catch your breath?

This week, the most simple of prompts – merely one single quote! Please respond to this quote in any manner you wish (and in the form of a poem of course!).

What if there were a hidden pleasure
in calling one thing
by another’s name?

~Rae Armantrout

That’s it. Go write. See you all in a week.

Have some pleasures, hidden or not!

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!
