Totally Optional Prompt: Anaphora

Well, here it is another Saturday and it's time for a new prompt.

Anaphora is a repetition device where the same expression (word or words) is repeated at the beginning of two or more lines, clauses, or sentences. You can read an example written by David Lerner here and a couple more here, one by Lawrence Ferlinghetti and another by Pablo Neruda.

Hope everyone has a productive writing week.
Hope everyone comes back on Wednesday evening to leave a link to whatever you'd like.
