NaPoWriMo – Day 25 Prompt

And now for our (optional) prompt. Anaphora is a literary term for the practice of repeating certain words or phrases at the beginning of multiple clauses or, in the case of a poem, multiple lines. The phrase “A time to,” as used in the third Chapter of Ecclesiastes, is a good example of anaphora. 

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NKJV)

THE RIGHT TIME

©2013 Diana Rasmussen

I’m waiting, for the right time, for my season to change
Patiently waiting, expectantly praying
I believe there is good, and it’s coming my way
Yes believing there is good, and it’s coming my way

To everything there is a season, a right time under the heavens
A purpose for everything, created before time began

A right time for birth and another for death
A right time to plant and another to reap
A right time to weep and another to laugh
A right time to mourn and another to dance

I’m waiting, for the right time, for my season to change
Patiently waiting, expectantly praying
I believe there is good, and it’s coming my way
Yes believing there is good, And it’s coming my way

To everything there is a season, a right time under the heavens
A purpose for everything, created before time began

A right time to hold on and another to let go
A right time to shut up and another to speak
A right time to love and another to hate
A right time for war and another for peace

I’m waiting, for the right time, for my season to change
Patiently waiting, expectantly praying
I believe there is good, and it’s coming my way
Yes believing there is good, And it’s coming my way
