{the #MoSt Poetry: 8}

Prompt #8: Happy Winter Solstice! I guess you could call today’s prompt The Long and the Short of It, or Slow and Steady…
Write about a time when you had to do something slower than you’re used to because something “modern and efficient” broke down. OR, write about doing something “the old-fashioned way” because you enjoy it. OR write about doing something carefully and meticulously because something important is at stake. OR, combine all three elements…

slow and steady

too much to tell you
too many words, haphazard
the keyboard won’t do
poetry wells from ink pens –
drips word by word on paper
