perhaps

if i practice enough,
i might find a way to capture
the little good moments:

baking bread
a cup of tea
falling snow
purring cats

budding flowers
a good book
long afternoons
singing birds

high tide
a full moon
soft sand
clasped hands

confidence
empathy
positivity--

perhaps

my words
may evolve
to carry more
than empty
cynicism.
i don't like my negativity. but that's something i can change.

awkward diction and layout, any advice/edits, dear readers? (:

'if i practice enough,

some possible thoughts:

- two small word changes for caveats
rather than certainty, 'might', 'should'.

- a less intense descriptive sound for the flowers,
plus anticipation of beauty to come, 'budding'.

- and, what looks to me like natural
line breaks.

- also, maybe reword the third line,
to flow the same thought more 'naturally'.

[however it must all seem natural to you.]

Oooh! I really like the line breaks and word changes! Added on a few new stanzas to deepen the poem and make it more relatable to various readers.

Thank you so much for your time, advice, and amiable discussions. I deeply appreciate your comments. (:
