Welcome back, everyone, for the thirteenth day of Na/GloPoWriMo.
And now for our (optional) prompt! Today, in honor of the potential luckiness of the number 13, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that, like the example poem here, joyfully states that “Everything is Going to Be Amazing.” Sometimes, good fortune can seem impossibly distant, but even if you can’t drum up the enthusiasm to write yourself a riotous pep-talk, perhaps you can muse on the possibility of good things coming down the track. As they say, “the sun will come up tomorrow,” and if nothing else, this world offers us the persistent possibility of surprise.
If I could pick a number I’d probably pick two
’cause two is just so perfect, just right for me and you
But then again I like four, four comes in pretty square
you find that number hiding, no matter here nor there
But I also like the odd ones like one and three and five
I’m thankful for the thirteenth, so happy I’m alive.
Go and pick a number, now pick one just for fun
Now think about good fortune, you are the lucky one.
