SIMPLE PLEASURES

There’s something about…

…the scent of monsoon in the air

… the wind in your hair

…the breeze against your face

…the sun on your skin

…the grass beneath your feet

…a book in your hands

…a dog cuddled in your lap

…a melody playing in your ears

…a song in your heart

…a prayer upon your lips

…happiness in your mind

  1. Contentment and ease to just be where we are right now. Beautifully simple and apart from the book they cost absolutely nothing. Happiness in the mind cannot be bought…it is found within…open-hearted and heartfelt words. Thank you.

      1. Hi Himali…still here! Just managed to find time to answer my WordPress friends’ comments. I hope you are well and happy. Been making the most of dry weather to garden! Very behind as have had a lot of heavy rainfall. I help my husband where and when I can and we run a gardening business so lots of clients just now. Next wet day I will catch up with a Blog or 2… I hope! Take good care, good night! 🙂 xx

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this with me! When I was very young, I lived for a while in Thailand. In the 40+ years since my return, I have forgotten many things I once knew. Among these, along with chinchooks, tuk tuks, and klongs, is “the scent of monsoon in the air”! Suddenly I find myself awash in remeniscence of many things long misplaced but mostly in the scent of monsoon.

  3. These are the simple pleasures in our everyday life that we ignore, that can keep us in a constant state of happiness and peace. Just by reading your words I was feeling such a warmth and peace in my heart, Imagine the amount of happiness they can generate when we get inspiration from them. Beautiful poetry. I love it.
