Just Add “…In Bed”

NaPoWriMo Day 13: The number 13 is often considered unlucky, so today I’d like to challenge you to beat the bad luck away with a poem inspired by fortune cookies. You could write a poem made up entirely of statements that predict the future (“You will meet a handsome stranger”), aphoristic statements (“The secret to getting ahead is getting started)” or just silly questions (“How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?”) Or you could use a phrase you’ve actually received in a real fortune cookie as a title or first line. However you proceed, I hope you will feel fortunate in the results (do you get it? Do you get it? Rimshot, please). Happy writing!

When one door closes another opens…
Stop procrastinating starting tomorrow…
Soon you will be sitting on top of the world…
Over self-confidence is equal to being blind…
Success has nothing to do with luck…
Apply your imagination to any problem that arises…
Look around happiness is trying to catch you…
Every exit is an entrance to new experiences…
Don’t worry about money. The best things in life are free…
Many memorable and pleasurable experiences are waiting for you…
You have a potential urge and the ability for accomplishment…
It’s the journey not the destination that counts…
You’re totally going to blow your presentation today…
You will soon discover your hidden talent…
A part of us remains wherever we have been…
The love of your life will appear in front of you unexpectedly…
You will be hungry again in one hour…
