Same View of Happiness

Written for:  Poetic Asides #644

"For this week's prompt, write a happy poem. The poem could be about someone else's happiness or your own. Maybe the poem looks at the pursuit of happiness or reveals a moment of pure joy. Of course, write this one in whatever way makes you happy."

My father used to
say, 'All I need
is the ocean, and
a nail to hang
my swimsuit on."
Funny that we
both had that
same dream
of happiness.

About purplepeninportland

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.
