Our Mission

Hello, visitors and Members alike! This group is here to inspire poems based on various prompts that revolve around a central phrase or idea, mainly poems based in the phrase: "Ask Me To Write A Poem"

Currently we are running a contest that revolves around Halloween: Check it out askmetowriteapoem.deviantart.c…


Okay, so before everyone freaks out, I haven't forgotten about my need to feature the last winner, I just started a new job and that's not an excuse but whatevs ANYWAY

Summer is a season of mixed emotions. For kids is means no school, ice cream and pool parties. but for adults, especially ones with children, it means more work. It means long days in the muggy hot weather.

But however you feel about summer, one cannot deny that its sunny, and hot (most of the time ;D )

For this poem we'll be writing a variation of a Cinquain. Traditionally, they have five lines, and follow a different pattern. This Pattern I'm creating is of my own design, so, it doesn't have a name.

Line 1: "Summer"
Line 2: 2 adjectives
Line 3: 3 verbs
Line 4: 3 sets of 2 word noun and verb combinations (I'll explain)
Line 5: an acrostic poem of "Summer"
Line 6: (empty)
Line 7: "Summer" (again)

So, Like this:

metal, cold
Cooking, heating, boiling
I stir. Grandma's magic. Dad burns.
Perfect On Top Stoves


Summer should flow much better. Now, if you want to bash or if you want to praise summer, that's up to you, either is acceptable. :)

As always, the Contest ends on the Equinox :)

Please submit here -> askmetowriteapoem.deviantart.c… thank you

and, good luck

This sounds interesting, and pretty straightforward. At first I had hoped it was a group where you give each other prompts, but 1 constant prompt works just as well. lol.

May I join?
