Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

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.

A Better Day

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
