An Ode to the Middle

The middle’s the point where there’s still some to do
but at least some’s accomplished (the first task or two)
a point to reflect on the things that are done
and to plan out the next steps (e’en two or just one)

a time to enjoy all the miles you’ve seen
to reflect on the fabulous places you’ve been
and think! there is more that you haven’t seen yet
and the following miles will be better, I bet!

and even this poem, that is 20 lines long
would not be complete if I continued along…

~~

a “twenty line” poem that deliberately ends after 10…I couldn’t think of any better way to write an ode to the middle than by ending in the middle  🙂

written for NaPoWriMo’s middle prompt
