Simple Pleasures

Deep among the dewy tops of gladioulus blooms
yellow gold dust pollen spots
stick to the buzzing bumbling bee and travel far away

Way up high amidst a grove of Springleafed Maple trees
a mama robin urges son
to fluff his wings and flap then well and leave the nest today

A muffled clap of thunder boils warning storms arriving
clouds roll in to hide the sun
lightening flashes signal bright to fishers in the bay

Laughter loud and clapping hands cheer the neighborhood
children play and run to hide
covering faces with hands and counting 'one - ten - one-hundred Okay!'

Wondrous acts of lovliness happen every day
one only has to look about
pausing to see the beauty in all we touch and see
