NaPoWriMo – Day 13

NaPoWriMo – Day 13

The day 13 prompt was inspired by the number 13!  The number 13 is often considered unlucky, so the prompt was to write a poem inspired by fortune cookies. I could write a poem made up entirely of statements that predict the future (“You will meet a handsome stranger”), aphoristic statements (“The secret to getting ahead is getting started)” or just silly questions (“How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?”) Or I could use a phrase I’ve actually received in a real fortune cookie as a title or first line.  Fortune cookies aren’t very common in the UK, and I think I’ve had about three in my entire life, but I’ve written a vague poem about seizing the day and starting again.  Hopefully it’s inspiring, if nothing else.

Cookie Crumbs

A journey of 1000 miles begins with one step
Your dreams can come true, if you have the courage to pursue them
Take a deep breath, it clears the mind
Two days from now tomorrow will be yesterday
