Poem a Day – Day 23 – Prompt is Next Chapter

We are rocking and rolling through the month now. Day 23’s OctPoWriMo prompt and the image below are from Julie Jordan Scott.

We were challenged to think of new chapters, new beginnings, and what comes next. I had to think a bit to find a new approach to an idea I seem to touch on a lot. I saw a really good movie, Begin Again, this summer and loved the idea of it never being too late to begin again. I
posted my response to the movie afterwards.

An earlier poem in this challenge, Day 20 – Better Late Than Never touched on starting now our new chapters.

So for tonight’s poem I thought about where I have been, where I am now and where I am going. This is what came to me. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

It felt like
“The End”
It seemed
unbearable
at the time
to accept the idea-
that version of my life
was being left
unwritten.
I wish
I had known
that you would be
my next chapter
my best chapter
my “Happily Ever After”
I love
this story
we now get
to create
together.
