Maturity (NaPoWriMo Day 12)

Maturity is a box-shaped piece of furniture
with at least one compartment—open or closed.
Maturity often has doors on the front and occasionally
a lock. Maturity may be built-in or free-standing.
A built-in maturity is usually custom made and
fixed into position. Free-standing maturity is more
commonly available and can be moved from place to place.
Maturity may be hung or suspended. Maturity which rests
is supported by some base—a plinth, feet, or a set of legs.
Some maturity contains secret compartments,
access to which is generally not obvious.

The fundamental focus of the maturity maker is the production
of maturity. Although the maturity maker may also produce
items that would not be recognized as maturity, the same
skills and techniques apply. The more serious amateurs now turn out
pieces of maturity that rival the work of professionals.

Maturity can add life to any room in your home.
It can set the aesthetic tone. However, choose wisely:
maturity can eat up your budget.

This was an interesting prompt from Today’s (optional) prompt is a “replacement” poem. Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.

    • One of my favorites too! Kind of easy because you could just pick a couple words and let someone else do the work, so to speak, but also fun to find the sentences that became really interesting with the replacement.
