The Thursday Think Tank #45 - Secrets

“Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.”
~Benjamin Franklin

Do angels whisper secrets to you in your sleep? Do you have a secret you want to scream from the top of your lungs, a burden you are holding? Some secrets are better left unsaid while others are held for silly reasons. As children we always whispered “It’s a secret” right before we begun to tell someone all about it. Maybe your secret hides a treasure or the fountain of youth. Secrets can be a great many things, good or bad and we want to see what adventures they take you on.

This week write about a secret. Any secret will do. Government plots, Special hideaways and escapes, maybe a shortcut to avoid traffic or a pesky neighbor. Whatever you’re inspired to write share it with us here at Poets United. Your secret will be safe with us. We’ll never tell a soul.
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.
