A Few of my Favorite Things...

PAD Challenge prompt 16:For today’s prompt, write a favorite poem. Maybe that sounds a bit silly, but what I mean is to write a poem about something that’s your favorite. A favorite teacher. Favorite movie. Favorite ice cream flavor. I don’t know, because I have my own list of favorites. Only you can do you…and your favorites. Who knows? Maybe this will end up being your favorite prompt this month...

Below, my favorite 'favorite things' song!

So, because of the late-night laundry date I reveled in a few favorite things!

Fresh cup 'o coffee
A rose glazed with dewdrops
Green haze of May days 
after spring has sprung
laughter of little ones
cheese before supper
 toffee bits melting
sweet, slow on my tongue

babies to rock-a-bye
books to belong to
backwood meander
just talking to trees
scrabble and apples
and company-set tables
 a long line of laundry
flapping in the breeze 

poems and poetry
with words or pictures
moody blue back-drop
thunder far away
bird-song and brook-song
and sea-song and love song
wanderlust dusting
 an open highway 

summer-sand beaches 
and winter-land wonder
spring-flavored sunbeams
a to-do list
Getting up early to
hear the sun stirring
kicking back covers 
of starlight and mist

making a memory
fragrant with flowers
planning a picnic
for today at two
fishing and fireworks
wish on a first star
fulfilled by the longing
of being with you

dancing at daybreak
with destiny's mystery
meeting at midnight with
future and past
pausing on pasture-lands
stippled with steeples
where shadow-builders
Lower twilight's mast

taming a tempest
of whispers with inkdrops
framing heart-pieces
in rhythm and rhyme
where there is always
too much to be written
and there is always
never enough time

love that is painful
because it is pleasure
love that is pleasure
because it is pain
Finding the treasure
in a moment's measure
laughing like I was
carefree once again

Listening to reason
while lying at leisure
beneath the lattice
of leaf overhead
  hearing the tiptoe
 of a poem's hello
long after it is time 
to go to bed


...on that note, Goodnight
or Good Morning 😏


  1. Oh that is beautiful, Janet! Your 'list' of favourites is indeed poetry as I read. We share so many similar favourites. Wouldn't it be fun to visit one day and explore a few together?
