The Simple Things

I find beauty in the creation of nature: 

The flowers blooming in spring. 

The birth of a wide-eyed child.

The moon and the stars shining their pale light in the darkness of the night.

Allowing a stranger to come into your life,
developing into a meaningful relationship. 

The sight of another, 
stirring up inside, 
breeding wonder and infatuation. 

A lake,
streaming in a bliss of tranquility. 

An innocent child, 
smiling from excitement. 

The discovery of something that ignites a burning passion. 

Music that soothes your troubles,
simply by grasping its significance to your own self. 

The scent of a fragrant candle, 
its smoke,
enticing a sigh of relief. 

A bond between beings that appear seemingly different. 

Fulfilling your intellectual curiosity. 

An unexpected hand, 
reaching out to help and support you. 

The feeling that you are content, 
that you are truly fulfilling happiness. 

I find beauty in the sensuous journey of life,
for it is the simple things that I desire.
