I have to admit, out of every prompt we had the past month, the [blank] ones were my favourite. Which made me happy to read that today’s is another one.
“Total [blank]” is today’s prompt, where [blank] is to be replaced by another word, and the result is to become the poem’s title.
As usual, and I hope it does not come as a surprise, this little site came in https://randomwordgenerator.com/noun.php and in the end, this is the title of my poem Total Patience, ironic given the fact that I am not at all a patient person. Not at all.
The seconds drop from the clock
Just like the water of a waterfall.
Every drip falling into the past, where
the old man will bend his back, and
collect them all, one by one,
and forge from them into a minute
to send into the future.
The old man, as old as time,
has never missed a second,
has forged all the minutes
and will die at the end of time,
known as Patience.
All jokes aside, we only have one more poem of this challenge, and I hoped the second to last one would have been a bit… special, but I guess you can’t force the muses to come.
Hope you enjoyed this one, and I shall see you tomorrow!
A bit sad that it is the last time I’ll write this.
