Laundry Love

Little Things

By Judey Kalchik Published 5 months ago 1 min read
Top Story - October 2023

My heart still lifts and my shoulders relax

When you tell me you love me.

I hope those words never stop.


I smile in the morning when I see my coffee cup

Perched under the machine's spout-of-wonder

Your I Love You is knowing my need.


Doesn't matter who drove the car

The BEEP of the lock engaging is a signal

And our hands gravitate together in a clasped I Love You.


Do you know that my folding your laundry is an I Love You

Thinking of you as each piece is smoothed and stacked?

Words and actions; hand in hand.


Love is expressed in many ways. Here are more of my love poems.

    Those simple little things, day in day out, are what real love is made of. They mean so much more than the big, grand gestures!

    I loved reading this -It is always the smallest of things that signify the underlying gentleness of love. No grand gestures. Super congratulations on a lovely Top Story.

    Wonderful poem, Judey. Your word choices always get me; little surprises. “ I smile in the morning when I see my coffee cup Perched under the machine's spout-of-wonder Your I Love You is knowing my need.” Congrats on TS!
