My Warm, Happy Place: A Saturday Centus

Thanks for dropping by this week's Saturday Centus post, an exercise in brevity. Typically, we are allowed to use up to 100 words. Miss Jenny's only permitting 50 words this time, along with a syrupy prompt (bolded below). What could I do with such high-level sugar content but dedicate a poem to my beloved nephew? I hope you enjoy, and check out the other offerings at Jenny's site. They are always worthy of visits/follows. 

Have a sunshiny, but not miserably so, weekend! xo Robyn

My Warm, Happy Place

You tackle the world with a trusting embrace
Snuggle my heart with a smirk on your face
Challenge the planet and win every race.
You are my sunshine and starlight
My warm, happy place!

I love and miss you, Jeremy.
Auntie Robyn

  31. Oh Robyn,
    What a sweet and well-written poem! Lucky Jeremy! (Love the photo of the two of you hugging.)

    Thank you for your kind words about my SC-post about Sanna. I decided to ditch John Tell and let Sanna's life be more like my own right now: alone with only the children and the cats.

    Best wishes & hugs,
