Today’s prompt is to write a poem which features a time difference.
You might like to consider:
- Which countries are concerned?
- How big is the time difference?
- Is the time difference a central or peripheral theme?
- Could the time difference lead to an amusing incident or misunderstanding?
Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.

Hi Pooky, Here is my effort today
I love it!
Have you done *every* prompt? I think you have? I think you’re the only one.. (Including me. I’ve skipped two)

No I did miss at least one, maybe two, there was one we both missed I think. You present such engaging challenges Pooky. Thanks for all the work you put in to them.
Oh bless you. I’m glad you enjoy them. I hugely enjoy reading everyone’s poems!

This has been brewing for a while, a concept in my head for years, but now distilled in a few days. I’ve taken the prompt and gone a bit sideways with it:
It would be unlike you to do it any other way 😉 Off to read it now. Are you currently awaiting a connecting flight? I’m hoping my journey home this evening is less eventful than yesterday’s journey here!
I have also written another poem about my current pause in Singapore. Less than 2 hours now, time to leave the poolside writing lounge 😀
In the balance of things, I believe you should have as smooth a trip home as is possible!
What time is it in Singapore? I arrived in Scotland so late last night that I couldn’t even get any dinner. Yet it was still light. It made me think of you! Have a safe onward journey and I look forward to reading your next masterpiece x
It is now 10:30pm which is GMT+7
I find it so hard to get my head around these things! Glad to hear you are now safely home. Your trip home basically took the entire time it took me to go to Glasgow, lecture, do some work, meet a friend and travel home!
Yes, it’s a long trip indeed. But not having 5 hours break between flights would actually make it less pleasant.
