Poetry Push - List Poems 02/22/11

Here's today Poetry Push for List Poems. It's a great way to warm-up your poetic muscles for the day. If you want to read more about list poems, check out the original post.


What does this prompt make you think of? Brainstorm a list first. What's puzzling to you right now? What are the pieces you need to complete something? Or maybe go off in a completely different way. This is just a warm-up, so don't spend a lot of time on it, five to ten minutes to create a list poem inspired by the Poetry Push card above. For some examples from previous weeks, click on the poetry push tag at the bottom of this post.

Make sure to add your name to the poem when you post it.

Have fun!
There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Many pieces to this puzzle
Still haven't found them all
Don't know that I ever will
Where do we all fit

Like pieces of the puzzle

Facing life's challenges
As they come one by one
One day at a time sometimes
That's all that can be done

Like pieces of the puzzle

Will we find all the pieces?
Will we reach our goals?
These are questions to which
We may never find answers

Like pieces of the puzzle

The puzzle of life.

You captured the frustration of life's puzzles very well, Anne. We may never know the answers, but at least we keep trying to put the pieces in the right order.

Lovely images in this one, Jenn and the ending twists and yet fits. :) Thank you for sharing. (Sorry for the delay.)

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
