#260 - Nearly

I find this word to have so much power.  "We're nearly there."  "I'm nearly done." "It's nearly finished."  There is so much power - or lack of power - in being almost somewhere.  The power comes in that moment of whether or not movement and action will continue to happen.  Sometimes nearly is nearly a permanent position.

What do you think of nearly?

Long time I don't stop by and leave a poem, but this is still one of the most inspiring writing blogs ever.

Thanks. =*

Thanks very much for the prompt! I combined it with another prompt, and wrote haiku about something being nearly limitless.

Hi Dennis! Welcome. :-) My take is on young love that could never "nearly" take place. Keep up the good work, Sunday Scrib. You keep me inspired!

I'm new to the blogging world but love this blog and the helpful nuggets of inspiration. Thank you!

So lovely to have links to everyone else's work and to hear feedback from people who really care.

This prompt was a great way to inspire some light-hearted writing.
