Today’s prompt:  “For today’s prompt, I want you write a poem about a memory. The memory can be good or bad. The memory can be a blend of several memories. I suppose it could even be a memory that you’re not sure you remember correctly. Take your time finding a good one (or good ones).”

Today’s offering:


Small Moments

My father carefully brushed

through the tangles of my hair

(unlike my mother,

who ripped them out)

and smoothed it into a crooked ponytail.

Later, I came home for lunch,

and my sandwich arrived

in puzzle pieces.

For that day, I felt cherished.
