Prompt #113, It’s Post Your Poems Day!
Supermarket found poetry
We Write Poems:
Is that the rattle of a shopping cart coming down the isle filled with poems? This week our prompt was to write a “found poem” using ingredients from your local grocery store (allowing for a minor role using your own words to supplement what you found). Did you incorporate the “ingredients” lists from some of the packaged food? Were there recipes posted for you to use? Did the scales suggest any grocery numerology? Read any copies of the national gossip papers in the check-out line? Did you think to include your own shopping list? What about the music playing overhead? And how might you have tied any of these together in a poem? Light-hearted or serious, all your choice. Now yours to say what you “found” at the grocery.
Tomorrow will be another “community poem prompt”. See you then.
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.
