Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 37 PoemWeek 37 words from @libbysommer_author: cappuccino, coffee, cafe, newspaper and iphone.


it's been a long time

since I sat in a cafe

leisurely sipping my cappuccino

(aaah, sweet coffee)

and reading the newspaper

while I waited

for my big brekkie to arrive


now I find

stolen moments

for myself

hiding in the kitchen

from my kids

while I check messages

on my iphone



Here are the words and my poem for the thirty-seventh week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

I have to admit, when I first read the words for this week I wasn't particularly inspired. They were so ordinary. And yet that is where their beauty lies. It's so easy to get caught up in the flash and fancy that we forget the value in the simple pleasures. Never take them for granted I say!

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. 

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).

Happy writing!
