#NaPoWriMo 2022 Day Seven

Begin Again

All good things
Come to an

Twenty years
Pass before
Really begins

NaPoWriMo PromptAnd now for our (optional) prompt! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that argues against, or somehow questions, a proverb or saying. They say that “all cats are black at midnight,” but really? Surely some of them remain striped. And maybe there is an ill wind that blows some good. Perhaps that wind just has some mild dyspepsia.  Whatever phrase you pick, I hope you have fun complicating its simplicity. Happy writing!

Good afternoon and welcome to day seven of NaPoWriMo where I let my fangirl out. Yes, season three of Picard was announced on First Contact Day, April 5th. And most years I have written poems about Star Trek on that date. This year I’m a couple days late, but I know Trekkies are aware the finale of TNG was titled All Good Things… so it seemed like the logical 😉 proverb to use. Also I don’t understand why youtube gives you an embed code if they have it blocked. But if you haven’t seen the trailer for season three of Picard, you can watch it on youtube. Im hoping it won’t be a true denouement where Picard dies at the end. They almost did it at the end of season one (they really did kill Picard but then put his consciousness in a synthetic body). I’m aware it’s been more than twenty years since the conclusion of the TV series; but I counted from the release date of Nemesis in 2002. Thank you for reading my day seven contribution and for allowing my enthusiasm to bubble up. Since it is Thursday, I’m off to watch the latest episode of Picard season two.
