The Thursday Think Tank # 74 - Winter


Surprisingly we have never used the topic of winter at the Think Tank before. We have covered every season save for the cold one. With all the current weird early winter storms affecting some folks I figure why not see what it inspires. Some of you may be dealing with warm weather and what not so this will be a great time to test that imagination of yours.

What does winter make you think about? Do you imagine snow filled days as a wonderful thing or do you dread having to shovel for hours just to get your car out of the drive way? Do you envision a gorgeous white sunlit landscape or the ugly grey mush of the city? Maybe it reminds you of a cozy fire with the family during the holidays or maybe it makes you feel alone and long for company. Whatever it makes you remember, feel or imagine we hope this week’s topic will inspire you to write.
We can’t wait to cozy up in a blanket and sit by the computer reading all your wonderful poems about winter.


If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to poetsunited@ymail.com . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.


There 3 simple rules:

1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.

2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.

  1. I'm being greedy this week, since I had two 'winter' poems that (I felt) deserved to be revisited.

  10. Posted a second piece because it is Remembrance Day today and I wanted to pay tribute to the fallen and those who still serve and the service is usually thought of as a part of early winter. Hope that's Ok and meets the prompt criteria. Thank you.
