The Thursday Think Tank # 80 - Choices

Every day in life we make choices. Even on the days we don’t want to. Not making a choice is actually making a choice. As confusing as that sounds it is true. Today for the Thursday Think Tank we want you to focus your writing on the choices you make in life. It can be a lifelong choice or memory of a choice or decision you made long ago that affects you today. If you want you can keep it simple and you can write about the fact this morning you chose to eat cereal instead of eggs. Not all choices our major and nor should everyone’s writings be major. Sometimes it’s the little choices that make us smile and continue on.

You've chosen to read today’s prompt so now the choice is yours to write or not write for it. We look forward to reading what you chose to write about today.

To write or not to write, the choice is yours.

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.


  1. Thanks for the choices provided today!

    1. Hi, I didn't write mine today, but it is about making choices.
      Also, I already posted links to three poems for the Pantry, I hope it's OK that I added another link here. Let me know if it's not, please. Thank you for the prompt, have a great day!

  8. Ok, now you will know me as the woman who has to post twice. Because, apparently she is not paying attention. Sad, sad, sad. I will try to do better next time.

    Excellent prompt, our choices locate us, they are great teachers.

    Thank you!

  9. Poets United,

    A GREAT choice of Thursday prompt!!!


  10. I think sometimes the choices we don't have the courage to make have just as much impact as the ones we do make. The triolet I posted today is reflective of that.

    Terrific prompt! Quite fertile territory there.

  11. Thanks for all the choices...great prompt...

  12. If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice - Rush
