If you take the time there are more than roses to smell


Simple Things

A moment of silence
Peace in your heart
A world without violence
Love never apart .

Holding a loved one close
The joy of a good book
Quiet time with your spouse
A deep and respectful look .

A hot cup of coffee
A busy summer fair
Sweet apples with toffee
Flowers in her hair .

Sleeping in late
Your only first love
Your only first date
Cool rain from above .

Wonderful fall wedding
Sunday dinner at home
New calf , fresh bedding
That moment alone .

Living God’s Blessing
Loved one’s all around
The joy of expressing
That wonderful sound .

The greatest moments of one's life come from "SIMPLE THINGS".

"SIMPLE THINGS" says it simply beautiful.

Thank You, Poet for sharing the flowers of Your poetic garden.
