This is my first attempt of writing poetry at age 69(about 5 months ago). I was sitting on my deck on a cloudy day and began to think of my grand daughter's smile and texted this short poem to her. She responded the next day that she was having a long day working as a hair stylist and that the poem made her smile and made her day.
Below is the poem entitled A Better Day which was written by poet
Braaten. Please feel free to comment on this poem. However, please remember, PoetrySoup is a place of encouragement and growth.

I was looking out at a dreary day
Not unlike many we have in May
I thought of your smiling face
It took me to a better place
