Two, happy poems.

Well, it’s Christmas tomorrow. I had to write something that left you smiling. I hope you like this, and if you do, maybe comment a lot? Also, share a lot. Just takes a button. Also, tell me about your happiest memory. Anyway, enjoy! Merry Christmas and Happy holidays!


In a line of poets
that can break your hearts
and numb your skin,
of course you would prefer the one
that makes you feel happy.
Consider this your rebound poem.
Do you remember
what your happiest day was like?
For me,
it was probably the day I wrote poetry.
The first draft was awful
but it had something very important in it.
It had a lot of me.
When I made a friend read it,
I had the widest grin ever.
I wrote a letter to a stranger once
and had an envelope smile on my face
as every word I wrote
made him less of a stranger.
I love oceans.
They’re like puppies to me
wagging their tail-like waves
running to me as I walk closer to them.
That reminds me,
I love puppies.
I held my first pet in my arms like a newborn.
Maybe my smile will finish this poem for me.

Keep smiling,
okay?

Give me prompts in the comment section. I’ve never shared my own picture before so let me know if it was weird. :P

  1. Aww, such a pretty poem. Just what I need today 😊 Merry Christmas! (Even though that’s tomorrow) I think one of my favorite Christmas memories would be the year we traveled to Europe. I’m always fascinated with the old and broken – so the ruins we visited we’re wonderful. I like to think they were blank canvases waiting for me to see them and tell their stories. (Don’t mind me, I’m weird πŸ˜‚) Anyways, hope you have a lovely holiday. May the new year bring you more wonderful memories πŸ’•

  2. Oh, I really love this. And it did make me smile! Thank you! And thank you for all the memories that are burbling to the surface as I try to recall the happiest ones – they are, thankfully, many! :)

  3. Not weird to share your photo :-) Coincidentally, I shared mine in my post tonight! *Grins*

    My most recent happy memory that stands out in my mind is the absolute delight of immersing myself in poetry again, particularly that of the Sufi poets. I wrote a poem about it on my blog called “Forgotten Delights” – it is so easy sometimes to forget the little things that feed our souls.

    Your photo has reminded me that I also need to get a hair cut, LOL!

  4. “Envelope smile”πŸ‘Œ

    I love the ocean too,and this quote peaks this poem for me.

    “I love oceans.
    They’re like puppies to me
    wagging their tail-like waves
    running to me as I walk closer to them.”

  5. It was definitely a very happy poem and your smile and the picture definitely gave this happy poem an even happier ending. Being one of those “depressed” writers (if I can even call myself that), it’s certainly very nice to read people’s optimistic piece of writings. Good job buddy!

  6. Oh and as for prompts… I have really wanted to write about a betrayer’s love story, but could never bring myself to write the right words. I wonder how you’d interpret it and put it in your own words.

    1. Well, I’m very tempted to write that in this sense: “I betrayed you by falling in love with you when I promised I wouldn’t”. But then I also want to write about actual betrayal. Maybe I’ll do both. Thank you for the prompt! Hope you end up writing on it, too. Let me know if you do.

      1. That’s a very interesting interpretation. I like that. Experienced both the scenarios, so definitely makes me want to write about them. I look forward to how both our poems turn out!
