Prompt #126, It’s Post Your Poems Day!
Your Masquerade Party!
We Write Poems:
Here’s the part of the Masquerade Party when you remove your mask, and all’s revealed to the light of day. As you well know, masks come in every color of the sun and every shade of the moon. Actually, we often wear them, at least some, every day. So, we do know masks! Our prompt this week was to write a mask, or persona, poem.
How wild afar or close and intimate was your mask? We made no guideline in that manner, only asking you to step outside your usual self, imagine another face, another life, another attitude, and discover how much you can make real the breath of that other self. Yet how much of what “isn’t you”, is?
So while taking to heart this other persona, an actor’s role, a writer’s craft, it both allows imagination to wander, yet in doing so speaks about our greater sense of being and self. All masks are now welcome to have their say! Please now share your poems here.
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.
