The Simplest Pleasures Are Often Most Profound - Poem by Anita Atina

A warm smile, that comes from the heart

Childish glee, at climbing a tree

A mothers’ sigh, as her babe gently sleeps

A lover’s tender, winsome kiss

Dancing in the rain, splashing in puddles

The ocean at night, waves a riddle

A warm spring day, after winter gray

The first stream of light, o what delight!

Climbing a mountain

On a path less traveled

Losing the way

To find the inner way

Staying sane

In a world going insane

Letting your mad streak

Not get ruined by routine

Letting your light

Get stronger everyday

The universe manifests in simple things

That yield pleasures, most profound

    Wonderful sentiment. But it should sing a little. Each line should dance like the one before. (Report) Reply
