Day 13: Saying

Today we had to turn a popular saying on its head and write a poem with it... I didn't follow the prompt exactly because I like to break the rules from time to time and feed the muse what it wants!

A Rhyme in Time Saves The Day!

although I did not
write a poem

a poem
wrote me.
Its words settling

on my tongue
like dew,
new tonic of elated

Baited by beauty
all day

I did not give in
to inconsequential

I rhymed;
I counted heartbeats
in iambic wonder;

blank spaces
with meaning.
