Just Right

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.

This was a perfect moment on a hike during a sabbatical I took to write at a friend’s lake house.

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.
