The prompt for the day was to play with some rhyme,
I thought why not, I have plenty of time,
So I set to thinking, needing something to muse,
Searching for subjects I thought I could use.
I sat alone thinking, letting the minutes pass by,
Rhyming aint easy, but I’ll give it a try,
Usually music helps focus the mind,
But singing along I am too often inclined.
So here in the silence I sit and I ponder,
Closing my eyes, I let my thoughts wander,
A eureka moment I am needing today,
I really can’t think of anything to say.
It’s not very often that words will not come,
In my dalliance, I’ve started to hum,
In tuneless songs and ditties I know,
The seed of an idea started to grow.
I’ll write a rhyme describing my day,
So thinking furiously, I got underway,
Fingers hit keys. moving faster than light,
This great idea was solving my plight.
So here it is, ladies and gentlemen please,
Pull up a seat whilst this moment I seize,
Wait patiently as I promise you much,
Tales and stories and poems and such.
Then suddenly the phone expectantly rings,
I answer swiftly, heeding the news that it brings,
Damn I say as I must bid you farewell,
I guess you could say I was saved by the bell.
