After today, we'll have just one more prompt and poem until April. Let's do this!
For today’s prompt, take the phrase "Almost (blank)," replace the blank with a new word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: "Almost Ready," "Almost Missed It," and/or "Almost Didn't Write This Poem."
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at an Almost Blank Poem:
the messenger calls out
but nobody responds
for the recipient
is strolling 'round the pond
