The Thursday Think Tank # 76 - Soul's Whisper

Does turning the calendar to December fill you will mixed emotions?  For some of us, winter will make her debut. This means our moods will be up n' down like the barometer.  Many of us will celebrate holidays, near the month's end. I find this time of year comes with mixed feelings. I see people struggling, people with excess, and people who still see the magic in the ordinary, and believe in miracles. I am going to try to be more generous, pay it forward, and smile more.  I think a generous spirit can live in our hearts, year round.  My photo is called Soul's Whisper. I would love you to pen a poem, that represents a whisper from your soul.


Our Monthly "Reflection" photo prompt is provided to us by Ella Wilson . We would like to thank Ella for her inspiring photos and for helping us out here at Poets United. If you would like to know more about Ella, see her other photos or read her poetry please visit the blog below:

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. Do not disdain portrayals of Love
    nor feign affection
    but receive with open arms and heart
    life's every emanation
    For Love's they falter
    and tend to fade away
    and hearts they get scorned
    and cry from day to day
    do not fold within
    like a flower sleeping
    at the end of it's season
    but always leave a little room
    to start again
