Challenge 2019 - Week 37 Words

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

lesiurely sipping my cappucino

(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're not on Instagram, post your finished poem in the comments below so we can all read your masterpiece. 

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 write a poem with them. Either dm me on Instagram with the words or put them in the comments box below.

Happy writing!
