Whew! It's been a few days since I've penned a poem, but I'm excited to get back into my weekly rhythm.
For today's prompt, take the phrase "The (blank) Time," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles might include: "The One Time," "The Dinner Time," "The Boring Time," and/or "The Super Amazing Time."
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a The Blank Time Poem:
“the space time,” by Robert Lee Brewer
i'm not sure if the space time
continuum really exists or if
it exists as a construct to make
us feel like we have some form
of understanding that continually
slips between our fingers like
the space and time of waving
to our parents and our children
and the endless waves rippling
throughout the ages lost forever
