Now That I Think Of It . . .

Weekly Scribblings #31:  What Makes You Smile?

For this week’s scribblings, I’d like you to write about the things that make you smile. Send over your prose and poetic joys, both fiction and non-fiction. But remember to keep your prose pieces to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person please.

When I make someone smile
or laugh, it brightens my day.
When I walk on the boardwalk
with my sister for company
we smile (under masks), and
reminisce about our childhood.
All animals bring great
joy, when they play with
toys, or cuddle up. Nothing
like observing pups. Giggling
babies bring a grin. Color
of trees in autumn, watching
flowers bloom, gazing at
the moon. If I help
another person, my reward
is an internal smile.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Even under a mask, we know when someone smiles. We can see it in their eyes.
