Good morning, dear WWP poets. I really enjoyed reading your poems from my last prompt. Your prompt this week is to write about “meeting places.” One of my favourite places is a small café in the zocalo here, which my husband and I try to go to when time’s allowed, and I also love the parks. But I have to say, high on my list is someone’s kitchen table, as there is comfort and a perfect intimacy in sitting around with family and/or friends simply talking and eating and, of course, there’s the laughter and sometimes tears. However, in the end, it’s the best “meeting place” I can think of.

So, poets, please write about your favourite “meeting place.” I’m looking forward to see what you bring. I’m wishing you all a happy upcoming weekend, which I’m eager for myself.
I’m still behind on reading a couple of you and will get around to doing so this evening. It has been a crazy work week with exams and a touch of the flu has hit me. C’est la vie.

Happy poeming, all!

    Perhaps to contemplative on a rainy Thursday morning before dawn…

    Lovers rendezvous; a special “meeting place” with space to breathe!

      Hi Walt, just a side note: hope you’re thinking about submitting to WWP’s anthology. We’d love to have your name lined up with the rest of us.

    I’ve been AWOL from so many prompt sites for a while…this prompt combined with another to create this:

    Thank you!

    Hi all. I wasn’t sure I would come up with anything for my own prompt as I am not feeling great with too much work and this darn flu nagging me. Also, I think this is rather contradictory of my prompt. I suppose that is how it goes.

    More of a memory. Don’t get around much any more

    Hi everyone. I haven’t been around much. This prompt did not bring me to a physical place: meeting place.
