At lunchtime I bought a huge orange—
The size of it made us all laugh.
I peeled it and shared it with Robert and Dave—
They got quarters and I had a half.
And that orange, it made me so happy,
As ordinary things often do
Just lately. The shopping. A walk in the park.
This is peace and contentment. It's new.
The rest of the day was quite easy.
I did all the jobs on my list
And enjoyed them and had some time over.
I love you. I'm glad I exist.
I love it! Simplicity and truthfulness wrapped up in an orange. I also love Differences of Opinion by Wendy Cope - it's one of my favourites.
Love does make everything seem brighter. Enjoyed the poem. Well written.
