“Forever” is a promise they say
Is it really, though?
Composed for every bit of each day:
Of what we have already, “yesterdays”
Nows offering the time for building every “tomorrows” of it.
~an impromptu poem for #NaPoWriMo day 6
Prompt Day 6: Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first letters of each line, I’d like you to write a poem that reproduces a phrase with the first words of each line. Perhaps you could write a poem in which the first words of each line, read together, reproduce a treasured line of poetry? You could even try using a newspaper headline or something from a magazine article. Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy this prompt. https://www.napowrimo.net/day-six-9/
For today’s offering in my first attempt for the acrostic poem, I picked up the title of a poem by Emily Dickinson: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/52202/forever-is-composed-of-nows-690
