Poets on the Page first mini poetry challenge for the year was this week. Amy Phelps McGrath led us through prompts that were inspired by a fairy tale, Goldie Locks and the Three Bears. Cold, Hot, Big, Small, and the final one today of Just Right. This is what I came up with.
What is just right?
Moments that are pure perfection,
is there ever such a thing?
I know that I have had a few.
Sitting on the beach watching the waves,
feeling fully connected as the words
flow onto the page.
Being with loved ones
and just for a moment
nothing seems hard.
Feeling the air on my skin
on a lovely spring day.
Chopping vegetables as I prepare
a meal for me and my love.
Watching my grand daughters laugh.
Just for a moment
everything feels right in the world.
