NaPoWriMo Day #15

Last, but not least, here’s our prompt for the day (optional, as always!). Because we’re halfway through NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that reflects on the nature of being in the middle of something. The poem could be about being on a journey and stopping for a break, or the gap between something half-done and all-done. Half a loaf is supposedly better than none, but what’s the difference between half of a very large loaf and all of a very small one? Let your mind wander into the middle distance, betwixt the beginning of things and the end. Hopefully, you will find some poetry there!

Congratulations, you have been invited to Toronto!
Wonderful! Yet, I'm a few thousand short.
Spring is coming, vibrant green grass grows,
congratulations, you have been invited to Toronto,
floats around my head as I apply for jobs that glow;
budgeting and keeping still, great news to report:
Congratulations, you have been invited to Toronto!
Wonderful! I'm only a thousand short--
keep saving and do not falter as the wind blows,
you're halfway there, keep your goal on court--
Congratulations, you have been invited to Toronto!
Pretty soon you won't be that short!
