March Writing Challenge Day 2: “Moments”

I decided to write a freeform poem for this prompt. Check out Taylor’s post for this prompt; I love how differently our two works of writing turned out!

Prompt for March 3rd, 2017: Write something that starts and ends on a beach.

Moments by R.C.

The beach was golden and the water was warm

As it rushed over her tiny painted toes

Seagulls squalled and she shrieked

As her father swooped her off her feet

And they twirled, danced, laughed

As loud as the crashing of green waves.

But sometimes, the most real of moments

Seem surreal at most in retrospect.


The beach was rocky and the water was cold

But her swollen feet were tucked in her shoes

Her peals of laughter have aged into a pensive smile

A lighthouse flashed and she closed her eyes

As her granddaughter rubbed her frail shoulders

And the two stared out into the gray waters.

Suddenly, a moment that once seemed so far away

Is suddenly upon you.
