Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

For today’s prompt, write a “calling it a day” poem. Some people might call this “Miller time,” others may refer to it as “closing time.” Just remember: Don’t call it a day until you put it in a poem.

Calling it a day
Before the day is done
Rushing into tomorrow
Before the morning sun

Unable to sit still
Unable to settle
A future on fire
From today’s candle

The distance traveled
Is all in the mind
An illusory existence
Of a machine, bending time

Calling it a day
Before the day is done
Negates the present moment
Leaving life’s songs unsung
