For this week's prompt, write an out-of-time poem. For me, I'm traveling to New York today (for our first in-person Annual Writer's Digest Conference since 2019), so I've found I'm out of time to get much more done before I hit the road (or the sky). So write about a work deadline, travel deadlines, or time travel. You've got time on your side...until you don't.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

when we must say goodbye
but until we get there
let's let the moment lie
