A Year In A Day

By Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to the Weekend Writing Prompt #268: Hosted by Sammi Cox
This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 46 words using the word “Year.”


When times are good and happiness thrives a year slips by in merely a day

When times turn dark and oppression takes hold a year drags on for untold days

When People decide between right and wrong – years of rebellion will grow wide and grow strong

    Reminds me of the line from “Hamlet,” — “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so” — Well done, Gypsie.

    And the older you get, the shorter each year seems.
