NaPoWriMo 2023 Day 7


Today’s prompt is to write a poem that plays with the idea of a list.

Bonnie and me
Things that are precious
by ARHuelsenbeck

a baby’s laugh
a silver dollar
an old piece of jewelry
a family portrait

a sunny spring day
the first snowfall
the beach early in the morning
a mountaintop

an intergenerational group roasting marshmallows
singing Christmas carols
playing board games

friends watching a funny movie together
discussing a good book
a school play

a field of wildflowers
the smell of bread baking
a hug and a kiss from a child
a hug and a kiss from the one you love

an old diary
a ticket stub
an old valentine
a newspaper clipping

a christening gown
a child’s drawing

  1. I liked your list, to be it was “excelent”.
    For sure I’d put “a school play” on my list. I was in every year’s class play
    for grades one through 10. I sat out 11 and 12.
