As with so many others who’ve been participating in this challenge, I am amazed not only by the quantity of poems submitted to Poetic Asides, but also the quality. And the creativity. You guys rock!
For today’s prompt, I want you to write a poem with the following title: “All I want is (blank),” where you fill in the blank with a word or phrase of your choosing. Some example titles, then, could be: “All I want is to eat fried chicken”; “All I want is world peace”; “All I want is for everyone to tell me I’m beautiful”; or “All I want is a handful of quarters.”
Here’s my attempt for the day:
“All I want is this moment”
Something as simple
as a father rolling
a groundball to his son
and showing him how
to pivot and throw.
