The Thursday Think Tank - #29 Stockings

Some are hung with care in hopes of presents. Some are worn because that’s just the way things are. Some seduce and some embellish. Some are wool, some are silk and some are torn. What do you think of when you hear the word stockings?

It is an odd topic but it can also be a fitting one (pun wasn’t intended but it works). Have fun with this week’s prompt. Feel free to use the image that pops in your head or to share the holiday spirit at home on the mantle or at the holiday Christmas party after a tad bit too much Egg Nog. Tell us about those who had to mend ones for use in their youth or how some scantily clad figure used them to lure in the innocent. Maybe you remember the tales of Pippi and her adventures.

Who knows what this prompt will stir in your wonderful and creative minds. Whatever your thoughts may be, we cannot wait to see what poetry you…expose.

If you have a prompt idea that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to . 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.
