As a species, we’re a bit obsessed with time. Most civilizations have been coming up with ways to measure it for as far back as we can trace our stories and legends. Or at least it seems that way. It’s one of those systems that only works because we’ve collectively decided that it makes sense. Out of that agreement comes so many idioms I can’t even imagine listing them all. Our language around time continues to evolve as it passes.
Writing Prompt: Write a piece about the passage of time that plays with the language we use to describe it. Will you invent some new idioms for futuristic world or engage in some poetic word play? Whatever you write make sure you have fun with it.
