Today’s NaPo prompt kept me quiet puzzled, to be honest. I was contemplating to not attempt it but then I thought, what the heck? Let’s give it a shot. So I gave it a try and also a twist of my own. As you can see I haven’t followed the prompt to the T but it’s a poem; of sorts. Without any further delay, let me tell you the prompt. Here goes: – ‘Today’s prompt is a “replacement” poem. Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.’
Love is like a set of blank, plain sheets
That can be written or illustrated upon
It is the bond between two things
Fastened together like a hinge on one side
Love can be divided into several sections
Each kind of love has its own name defined
Love cannot be bought at a store or a shop
Neither can it ever be borrowed from libraries
Some kinds of love have shorter runs
But some are like a continuous roll of paper
That can be given out in shorter bursts of time
And collected and stacked one after the other
But modern love depends on a lot of things
Frame of mind, size of love and even intensity
These kinds of love last not for a long while
They are similar and temporary, just like time
Tangible noun:- books.
Intangible noun:- love.
