Today’s NaPoWriMo.net prompt in honour of the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere is a poem on a theme of rush and hurry.
(and today I was delighted to discover I am the Day 18 featured poet for yesterday’s social media poem. How lovely!)
When it’s true
there’s all the time in the world.
“Marry in haste, repent in leisure.”
I remember seven months
when time stood still
and you were the air I breathed.
In haste, married,
then filled a house with babies.
Now they’re gone, but you’re still here
Our leisurely repentance
is luxurious reward for our haste.
Happy 30th engagement anniversary to my love. (4 months after meeting and 3 months to the wedding!)
