The simple things in my life give me the most pleasure, smelling flowers, planting a tree, walking in the rain. "Chocolate chip" kisses from my grandchildren. This is what this poem is all about.


I watch my puppy chase the birds,

they always get away;

the chatter of the squirrel from the tree,

says hey buddy look at me.

The gentle rain, and hey Nana

Let's play.

Little arms that squeeze my neck;

chocolate chip kisses, and little bruised knees.

Look at us, we can climb trees.

The sun dries the rain and kisses the bees,the gentle breeze filters the air.

It is time for the night when we all gather there, down on our knees to say our prayer.

We thank you dear Lord for giving to me, we love you dear Lord, we are living for Thee.

This reminds me of my two grandboys ages 5 and 6 that I see about every day as my wife home schools them. Sometimes when I look into their eyes I feel the presence of the Lord. Even as I write this I feel tears coming. Your poem reminded me of how good God is to us.

Your poem touched me deeply.
"Living for the Lord."
Is that hard to do?
It's easy to say.
I don't want to be a part-time worker for The Lord and a full - time worker for man.

Appreciating what God has given us is truly living right. I enjoyed this descriptive write. So good and easy to read. Kept my interest very much.

Beautiful, this really made a calm come over me-you chose such strong, emotion-filled images that you didn't have to reaffirm the feeling throughout by using too many words, a good lesson for all poets :)

Great and powerful benediction. I loved this piece of simplistic beauty.

What a lovely image. What a lovely poem. It pulled me in & made me feel both safe & inspired. "Chocolate chip kisses" ... I love that line.
