Anticipation

Cafe Writing - Option Two - Timed Writing

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best — ” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.
~A. A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

Take seven minutes (use all seven, but don’t go over), and write on the subject of anticipation. This is a timed exercise and it’s expected that it won’t be perfect. Any format - fiction, essay, verse - is welcome.



Anticipation

Anticipation
'Tis the nature of the beast
Waiting and wondering
When the right time will be
The butter's not ready yet
The bread hasn't risen
And the jelly's not jelled
But when they all come together
What a merry meal it'll be
