Carpe Diem

Writing Challenge: Oct 25, 2017

Prompt: Write about living in the present moment

I’ve heard it said a thousand times, the secret to life: “Carpe Diem!- Seize the day!”

I seize mine by sipping coffee- tasting the milk and sugar swirl together with the bitter coffee on my tongue.

I seize mine by listening to the wind blow through the trees and rattle the wind chimes.

I seize mine by smelling my bread baking in the oven- yeast and walnuts toasting in the heat.

I seize mine by reading a book of poetry in the blue, high-backed armchair- feeling the rough paper with my finger-tips.
