And now, for our (optional) prompt. Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of the possible. What does that mean? Well, take a look at these poems by Raena Shirali and Rachel Mennies. Both poems are squarely focused not on what has happened, or what will happen, but on what might happen if the conditions are right. Today, write a poem that emphasizes the power of “if,” of the woulds and coulds and shoulds of the world.
Such deep questions! And you wove in all the prompts beautifully. 💞
Thank you so much Punam 🙂💕
My pleasure, dear.
This speaks to my sense of trying to care, trying to attend and be aware.
Yes Paul. It is so important to remain aware of our surroundings. It’s so easy to become complacent and just worry about ourselves 😔
some questions are so deep Christine, feels like we need to live another lifetime to figure it out. I feel your words and allow it to wash over me, questions sometimes don’t need answers, they just need to be said. one of your truly memorable ones this!
You are too kind, dear Gina. How right you are, these questions are unanswerable. It was those questions we always asked as a child, yet the sty with us, don’t they? 🙂💕
yes they do Christine, i appreciate your gentle probing through poetic verse
We deal in so many hard cold facts, it was a pleasure to take a fanciful moment, and spend it with the what if’s..
Thank you Violet 🙂💕
A brilliant poem. Covering all the prompts very well.
Thanks Sadje. I think I was just lucky today. Some days I have nothing! 🙂💕
I do love the rhythm here. I find myself in “what if” mode sometimes, too.
Thanks Laura! I think many of us do 🙂💕
What if ?? those eternal and infernal questions…. Maybe time for a song
You always have the right answer Ivor 🙂
Always my pleasure 😃😉
<3 Beautiful! Asking "what if" breaks through the jaded adult consciousness and reaches back to recapture childhood wonder. Or attempt to, at least, find some pre-jaded idealism.
Ahh yes! I remember those days! 🙂💕 Thanks Judy!
You wrote an interesting poem, leaving me with much reflection. What if? Many questions unanswered, if, they were all answered, we would always find more to ask. Then we could also say, what does it matter.
Ha! Yes Hélène! I should have called it “Who cares” 🙂 lol 💕
Made me nostalgic for some reasons. Beautiful!
Thanks so much 🙂
