It’s been a while since I have done one of these but thought it was a good time to do a poetic collaboration on things that make us happy. Could be a piece of toast, a beautiful day or a kind gesture…I think we need to see more of these during these times…
If you are new to my blog you can see an example of a previous collaboration via this link. Everyone is welcome to participate and I will add your contribution in the order they are posted. You can post your piece in the comment, please ensure to post the actual text not just a link in order to be considered. You can post multiple times. Hateful language will not be tolerated and will be promptly removed if posted. The collaboration will be open until 10 pm MST April 30, 2022. As usual, I will start it off, and I hope many of you will join me in making this yet another beautiful collaborative effort!
And the daydreamer,
followed her dreams,
in the open roads,

Blossoms bend their heads
in the breeze moving
through this meadow.
Sun is warm.

Knitting Makes Me Happy
When I have nothing else to do I sit
I knit for babies I knit for kids
I love to mix the colours bright
I love to knit pullovers tight
I find the mind involved and away
for me its a reading calculating book
Its good to have this as a hobby

Stretched out on the lawn
bathed in warm sun
we idle with you, our travelling son
spend time on important things
laughter, love and
space to simply be

She adjusted my jacket collar ,
smiled a that looks better smile ,
with that simple gesture I felt happy ,
I felt loved .

Under the moonlit sky
I saw you for the first time
I was awed for you were glowing
Like the millions of stars in the sky
But you didn’t see me then, maybe because you were crying
And I found it impossible not to approach and ask you “why”?
You turned towards me, your lips playing a sad smile
You said you wanted to fly
You said you wanted to let out a happy cry
You said you wanted to dream
However hard it may seem
But you couldn’t
You were fading away with the melancholic night
You asked me to stay, to help you dream
You extended your hand for me to take and with you, fly
But I turned away
Because my love,
I too, was fading away
Under that moonlit sky.

The scent of a smile
Rejoicing the air
Pure moment of bliss
Thank you for the bottom
Of heart melt with
Honey precious light

Happiness comes in waves
like the rhythm of the sea;
Boundless energy bringing
Pure love and joy
to your every breath.

The noise of the grass cutter.
A quiet breakfast is out.
The noise gets louder.
I cringe as I drink my coffee.
Then I get a whiff so soothing.
The smell of freshly cut grass.
The smell of coffee; its taste.
The noise fades, I enjoy my coffee.
