Here’s a lucky last poetry prompt for 2016 for those with a little time to spare and a yen to finish the year on a creative note. I hope you’ve all been enjoying these weekly prompts as much as I’ve enjoyed reading the wonderful submissions that have been turning up in my in box in response to them. I am always so impressed with what you create and I hope you will continue to contribute to ACP next year. It’s been such a pleasure reading and posting your poems. Send your submissions to me at traffa-m@bigpond.net.au as a Word or Text document attachment and add a few lines about your writing process.

Happy writing!

Hi everyone,

It’s the time of year when many of us are thinking of giving, so what better to prompt your creativity than a gift tag. Don’t let the image limit you, though. Gifts can be many and varied and some of the most memorable we receive are not material. Time…thoughtfulness…caring and consideration…friendship… See what you can come up with in a poem for children.

Thank you to all the wonderful poets submitting regularly to this site. Your contributions are much appreciated. Please keep them coming. I love reading your work and sharing it with our growing list of followers.

Send your poems to me at traffa-m@bigpond.net.au as a Word or text document attachment and add a few lines about your writing process.

Happy writing!

This week’s poetry prompt is self explanatory. With the festive season rapidly approaching I decided it was time to explore some ideas about Christmas celebrations. What did this time of the year mean to you as a child? What memories do you have of Christmases past? Send your submissions to me at traffa-m@bigpond.net.au as Word or text document attachments.

Happy writing!

Remember what it was like when your best friend told you a secret and made you promise not to share? I can’t wait to see what wonderful poems you come up with this week. Have fun and play with this prompt. Remember, you’re writing for children. Cast your mind back to how it felt to be four, six, or 10. What secret would you tell? Would you tell it? What would it take to make you talk?

Poem of the Day

An Orange Egg

 

I’m sure that I can eat an orange egg.

You do not have to plead. You needn’t beg.

I do not think that I have ever tried

An orange that’s been boiled, poached or fried.

Nor have I yet consumed an egg that’s raw,

Been neatly peeled, and sliced up into four.

 

An orange placed on toasted sourdough

Is not a taste sensation that I know.

I haven’t eaten egg as marmalade.

I’m not convinced that it would make the grade.

I know! I’ll mix the two into a goop,

And eat them as an eggy, orange soup!
