Little Things - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Little things
Appreciated, make all the difference
When the major comforts of life are gone
It sucks
But you adapt
Little things
Once ignored, now take on more meaning
Having nothing left to lose
Is a kind of freedom… But
Little things
Priceless, sanity saving, motivating
It’s been so damn hot
Tropical, drenched in sweat for over a week
Little things
Cooler, drier air is supposed to arrive tomorrow
Little things
No windfall, no meeting my soulmate, no material luxuries
No change in status. But hope
Little things
A dry brow, a cool breeze, a good night’s sleep
Little things… Can be huge

    A great ode to little things this. Have a good night's sleep with the cold breeze gushing in. (Report) Reply

    I will sleep like a baby. (Except for that whole diaper filling thing.) : -)

    I am acutely aware of the little things. They add up

    So true! Those things which we once ignored in our heydays become immensely valuable when the major comforts of life are gone! Also we realize that being hopeful is more exciting than fulfillment! Little things do bring a lot of difference, though no major change in status! A beautiful poem.

    Thank you, Valsa. You are right, being hopeful is often better than being fulfilled.
