Friday the 13th

Time Marches On

 
TIME MARCHES ON

It
was
a year
I’ll never
forget, becoming
a teenager was thee milestone
we had all been waiting for: turning thirteen years old.
The perspective of looking back
on that year makes me
wonder why
I rushed
time
by.

On this “Friday the 13th”, I’ve written this poem for Poets United Midweek Motif: Thirteen–to use thirteen lines to write a poem about thirteen. I used the Fibonacci form with a reverse Fibonacci, which by default also makes the middle line thirteen syllables long. 🙂
