Adult “W.O.M.” Poems

Each month this blog will feature a word of the month to stimulate a poem. Anyone who wishes to share a poem is invited to participate. The point is to enjoy the challenge of writing a poem inspired by a single word. It doesn’t matter if this is your first poem or five hundredth. It’s all done for the fun and exercise of writing.

Cutoff for posting the current Word of the Month poem is the last day of the month.

On the first day of each month, a new word will be posted to challenge your imagination for that month.

Please post your poems on this page, so everyone can find the poems easily. 

Thank you and have fun!


PS: The word for December is DATE.

  1. A Date

    There is nothing as sweet as a date.
    It’s not something you have every day.
    But a regular date
    With a meal
    With a mate
    Is good for the heart.
    Don’t delay.

  2. I hope you don’t mind a second poem. This relates to an upcoming date.

    January 1

    My New Year’s Resolution
    Went terrifically this year.
    With some hesitation
    And a tiny pinch of fear,
    I pledged to post a poem a month
    On David Harrison’s blog.
    I’ve done it now twelve times on time
    Through rain, hail, sleet, and fog.

    Braver now, more confident,
    I once again resolve
    To write 12 poems, one each month-
    Twelve word-puzzles to solve.
