Request For Poems

It's time to show your cards, and read what the other poets brought to the table. The Linky widget included with this posting is a fine way to leave a link to your poem inspired by the 'Work' prompt, or any other poem you want to share. Comments are available if Linky doesn't work for you, or you want to add encouraging remarks, or any other remarks.

Poetry Collections Replay
Poets, such as you, can create a collection of their works in a word processor, such as MS Word, save the document and use pdf Online to convert it to pdf format. A pdf file is half the file size, can be accessed with a free Adobe Acrobat reader and is an easy way to distribute your works to interested readers. Over in the sidebar is information on obtaining some available poetry collections.

Saturday night Tiel will put up the next Totally Optional Prompt. And, thanks for your support.

"Personally, I have nothing against work, particularly when performed, quietly and unobtrusively, by someone else. I just don't happen to think it's an appropriate subject for an "ethic." "

I so agree

The prompt took days to catch my muse's attention, but once I started, it came pretty quickly.

Hi Everyone,

Great prompt this week -- I'll be back after work to comment. Here's mine, in case the linky-thing doesn't work.

I am writing in long format this month with National Novel Writing Month. my page at NaNoWriMo
But of course, I won't leave poetry behind. I will post one every week, but it might be an old one. This week's is squeaky new.

My post this week is not a poem, but I submitted anyway -- because it's about the great poetry resources we have online now, including this one.

This Girl Remembers said...

Whew! This week's prompt was hard for me. But mine's up now - about a jealous lover, of sorts - at
She'd Made Her Choice

Dale said...

I'm in. Though I confess the connection with the prompt is, shall we say, tangential?

Linda said...

I so look forward to getting home from work on Thursdays now! So glad I found this site and all the inspiration.

Now for a glass of wine and a visit to all the posts this week...

I didn't want to post this using the automatic thingy, because I feel this poem is a little disturbing, and want to have that stated clearly as a disclaimer before anyone accidentally clicks on it with out being properly warned.

Here is my poem, and, incidentally, it is the first of my attempts at NaBloPoMo (blog posting month--post to your blog every day during November). Anybody else participating?

Comments & critique welcome!

BD: I'm afraid I don't get what you mean. There isn't a participant list for TOP, I haven't had time to think about setting one up. Is there some other list somewhere you think you should be on?

If you have a collection, I'll be happy to list it, but you need to email me the info in the sidebar.
