The Thursday Think Tank - #44 Your First!

First Dance?

First broken bone?

First Kiss?

The first quality that is needed is audacity.
~ Winston Churchill

Today's Prompt is brought to us by Carrie Burtt. I am stretched a bit thin currently so her timing is splendidly perfect.

Carrie suggested we write poems on our firsts. "a first" in a first kiss, first job, first vacation, or even first  When is the first time you experienced death, love, God, hate, a broken bone, happiness?  When we ask about your special first what is the first thing that pops into your head?  Write about it.  Share it with us.  I am curious to see who will be first today.

(Thank you Carrie for bailing me out on this one!)
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 . 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.
