Poetry Prompt: Make that line the title of your poem. Write a poem inspired by the line. Then, after you’ve finished, change the title completely.
Instead of a line, I decided to write about how some authors are able to write words that can endure even as the time in our lives keeps moving forward.
Again I missed it the first time I found it the second time The third time I fell asleep But I already knew what happened The fourth time didn’t lose its charm The fifth time still strong The sixth time was a long time separated From the fifth Some books are meant to be shared This one goes back on my shelf Until The seventh time Comes around
Have an extra minute? Read it (again) on Medium: Day 6 (yes, I do get paid/read.)
