November 20, 2013 November Pad Challenge


After today’s poem is done, we’ll all be 67% of the way through this challenge. That’s right! We’re nearing the finish line on this poeming intensive. If you’ve been gliding through the month, keep that form. If you’ve been struggling, take heart, dig deep, and push for the finish!
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Always (blank),” replace the blank with a new word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: “Always on My Mind,” “Always Wrong,” “Always Writing Poems That Don’t Sound as Good the Next Day,” etc.

The Perception of Time
Always
Sometime
Never
Nothing is always
Sometime more reasonable
Never unknown

Never 
Return to
The days passed
Lived 
Loved

Time is sometimes fast
Sometimes slow
Never backwards
Always forward

The future holds
Many new sometimes
Surprises
Joy
Sorrow

The rocks and
The mountains
Seem always
Maybe the universe
Will be always

Nothing is really
Definite when it comes
To time
It is all perception
