Favourite. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

Favourite. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

Welcome to this week’s Photography and Poetry prompt which happens to be ‘favourite’. 

I have to admit to finding this one a little tricky because I have so many favourite things! And I didn’t want to choose Ross and Grace again (even though they are my favourite of favourites!). So, this week I have decided on a photo of cake! Because who doesn’t love a piece of cake – especially us bloggers! 

My poem is again outlining a number of my favourite things. I would love to know what some of yours are.



Sitting outside on a hot summers day
The smell of a stable – the ones with fresh hay
The look on her face as she sleeps peacefully
The smile she saves especially for me
Watching our box sets when there is just two
Our Monkey Life teas are just something we do

My blogging friends although they are far
The ones who support me, you know who you are
The spread of a good old party tea
No matter whether it’s for you or for me
Chocolate by the ton is something I adore
It doesn’t matter what, but I always want more

Coffees are best, especially latte
Drinking them decaf is my particular forte
My love of photography and my faithful camera
Whether it be a portrait or a panorama
These are just some of my favourite things
The choices in my life that make my heart sing

    Lovely Poem Vic. Really love the bit about your daughter. So true. I love a good latte too and also the smell of freshly cut grass, birds singing on a sunny day and the first day in a foreign country. The excitement and scent of adventure and exploration. It’s the little things, ay? Congrats on BiBs – thoroughly deserved. #pocolo xx

    Lots of lovely favourite things and I love how you’ve pulled them all together into this poem. The third and fourth lines in your first verse are just so beautiful – two wonderful moments from motherhood captured so perfectly there 🙂

    With you on chocolate, there’s always space for more. And latte is my favourite too. As for special smiles, we are so lucky, aren’t we?!
