An Innovative Prompt!

I came to know from Janaki's blog about this very interesting, innovative and creative prompt provided by Corrinne, who blogs @ Everyday Gyan. So, I thought to give it a try. It's called 7x7x7x7 writing prompt. We just have to go to our bookshelf. Pick the 7th book. Open the 7th page. Pick the 7th line and starting with that line, compose a poem of just 7 lines.

On my bookshelf, the 7th book was A thing beyond forever by Novoneel Chakraborthy. Seventh line on the seventh page was "Time to wait for or search one"

So here goes my attempt:

Time to wait for or search one
Opportunities seldom look back, once gone
Sometimes they keep you waiting & waiting
Going ahead to search one, becomes booming
If got an golden opportunity
No matter waited or searched one
Making the most of it is a wise option

Time is precious and it waits for none. It's a very cliched line but true. Life gives many opportunities and it depends on us how prudently we grab it. They don't hesitate to slip like sand. Sometimes, we just have to wait for the correct time but when it keeps us dragging for long, we should prompt us to search for one.
