For today's prompt, I want you to take the phrase "So we decided to (blank)" and fill in the blank. Make that your title and write a poem. Some possibilities include "So we decided to plant a tree" or "So we decided to burn a hole in the sky."
So we decided to see Beauty
The day was dark and drear
Not much fun, I fear
We looked out side and saw the rain
“Oh,” he said, what a pain!”
I was hoping for bright skies and a sun that shines
For warm breezes I do pine.
But look at that so cold and damp
It is no fun my style it does cramp
But Father dear, said my little boy
We are together today – I think that is a joy.
You are right my friend I said to him
You fill me with wonder – up to the brim.
Instead of seeing clouds and dark
let us look for a lark
or a robin
a violet shy
a break in the clouds
a bit of blue sky
A bright little beetle
crawling home –
There see it - under the garden Gnome.
The light we find in each other’s eyes
Mrs. Murphey’s golden apple pies
You see there is a lot out there if we just look
About beauty we could write a book,
