one smidgeon of sun on an overcast day

one nudge from a puppy who just wants to play

one handwritten postcard among all the bills

one view from the bay of the island’s sandhills

one stick of licorice that cheats on a diet

one sound in a moment that’s meant to be quiet

one night on your back staring up into space

one uplift of wind that falls soft on your face

one walk on the shoreline at sunset or dawn

one whiff of the scent of a newly mown lawn

one neighbour who gifts you a beef casserole

one line in a poem that speaks to your soul

one lick of gelato to tongue-save the drips

one riff from a song that entices a skip

one look from an infant that makes you both smile

one life full of moments that make it worthwhile
