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.

Slow down.

.

They say

“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!)
