Prompt #139, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

January 23, 2013


A Moment Unexpected

We Write Poems:
With whom and what moment did your observation land this week?  We asked you to write a poem as you chanced upon a moment with someone you care about, unobserved except to yourself, and then describing both the physical elements and your emotional experience of being with that other person.  Simplicity is of the essence here – although one moment can contain much depth of experience certainly.  Read the original prompt here, as you wish.

little pencilPlease now, share your poem with us.  Leave a link to your poem in a comment below.  Leave the poem itself if you don’t have a blog.  If you have questions about We Write Poems and our prompt-and-poem process, or you’re new here at WWP, please read our about page.

The full prompt description you can find under “Recent Posts” on the top right of our page.
