COME ONE, COME ALL / March 11
by Carolee, Deb & Jill
It’s show time! It’s time to post your original poem, written in response to Monday’s prompt — science!— or any other inspiration from the week. (We love it when you write to our prompt, but we also love it when you write on a whim. We all know how fickle that muse can be.)
What did you write? Please leave a link to your blog post, or leave your poem itself, in the comments!
Let the show begin! This post is “sticky” — it will stay right here in the spotlight for you all weekend.
Here’s how prompts work under the Big Tent
You’ve got all week to write your poem, based on this week’s prompt. Come Fridays (today!) you’ll find a “Come One, Come All” post (this one!) where you can 1) leave a link to your poem or 2) leave the poem in its entirety.
We want to give you all weekend to post your work and read each others’ work. Take your time. Enjoy all the poems that are new to the world.
Hint: We’ve set Big Tent Poetry to Central Time.
Hint: An easy way to check on new post comments is via a RSS reader, if you use one. Here’s the address you would add to your reader: https://bigtentpoetry.org/comments/feed.
Hint: If you are new to our site, or put more than one link in your comment, your comment(s) will be held for moderation for your first few posts. We’re checking the filters often, so don’t despair! That said, if it takes more than a half a day to see it come live on the site, do email us at info (at) bigtentpoetry.org. (But be patient, okay?)
We figure you know how to play in the poetry community, but here are the basics:
Be nice. Have fun. Remember we aren’t a critique forum. We want to support each other as we bring more poetry into our lives. Only provide critique if someone specifically asks for it.
Although we love seeing our badge in the sidebar of your blog, we would appreciate it if you would also link back to the site in each of your poem posts. Linking within your post helps people travel back and forth from your site to the Big Tent Poetry site, and it helps perpetuate Big Tent Poetry “findability” in Google searches — and that helps us all.
An astronomical attempt: With a Bang, With a Whimper
Hi, Should be fun!
Whirling Stillness. Time, memory. A drawing of some strange vertebrae became integral to the poem, too.
Thanks so much for inspiring me with the Space Station article. Here’s my
Limerick In Free-Fall.
I don’t know why I can’t reply to your posts, but I keep trying. THe message says you block replies with proxies as does some others. Since I don’t know what a proxi is, I can’t fix it but I do want you to know I love your limericks.
Love your Limerick!
a nice thought!
Very Sweet! I enjoyed!
I loved this. Lovely.
Jeeves, it is SO good to see you posting. Last week too I couldn’t comment. I have missed your beautiful verses…
Ah, when science and love collide.

I like your Science poem, Vivienne…I agree everything is science, poetry and cooking too…The Science of Poetry.
Here’s my science poem…needs some rewriting, which I didn’t get a chance to do. I’d love to have your suggestions. Looking forward to yours.

Nice to see you here, Anthony. Welcome!
Hi, it was very hard to wait till Friday, so here it is.
For all readers, please note that the English-language poem is below the Bulgarian, so be patient and scroll a bit.
Thanks for joining in, Mariya. Glad you found us!
Is there such a thing as anti-science? If there is, this is it.

My now love of science in the form of an experiment:
I don’t know why but I can’t comment on typepad blogs. Julie, I enjoyed your poem very much…
This was fun and a bit of a challenge!

Welcome to the Tent, Nicole. Glad you had fun!
I know little or nothing of science. This is a real experiment, lol.
A bit of a found poem from language in a science text:
Nancy, your poem too made me sit up. Can’t comment on typepad blogs, hence doing it here…
I ♥ science poems! Today’s offering was inspired by one of the element on the Periodic Table.
Noticed this story in the wickipedia under Tsunami
This is an acrostic.

A brief (make that very brief) history of science:
Ah I love science as along I don’t have to take a test on it! Enjoy
i’ve got weather (again). that’s science, right?
ah, i’m stretching it. my poems got weather, but nothing science-y.
sorry i have been lax about reading. i am hoping to get in a better groove. finished my second week of full-time work (my first since 1999) and all i want to do is sleep. :)
Here’s mine: Finding the Hidden, Exploring the Known. It’s about those “ghostly shapes of the Gamburtsevs.”
And some other things.
I got a little distracted following threads in the Antarctica.
So glad you guys enjoyed the prompt! Will be reading you this weekend.
Great prompt and wonderful links! Thanks.
Hi, first time here. Hope I am doing this correctly. hugs, pat
Hi Pat! You’re in the right spot. Welcome to the Tent!
I think this qualifies.
Could not come up with a valid poem for science. Hope this is acceptable.
Something old and something new….
Prayer for Japan… 祈り
Oh, dear. I’m even later than usual, and my poem has very little to do with science, except for the fact that I truly am allergic to the sun.
