Daily Prompt: January 25, 2023

List five things you do for fun.

Daily Prompt

I read and view blogs – poetry, prose, and other art. Print books and poetry journals as well. And I cook simple meals and watch the seasons from the kitchen window. I create new posts and write new poems. Music – many things add beauty to my days. Thank you.
