Simple Things Appreciated …
Simple things appreciated are much of the joy of life.
In the early morning when awoken by Robin’s song.
Morning sunrise peeking in my window.
Purple lilac’s sweet fragrance.
Loons calling to each other on the lake.
Every moment of joy with loved ones and all of nature.
Ice cold mountain creek water sipped from my hand.
Memories of childhood.
Entertaining antics of the family pet.
Living in the moment.
Each bite of a brownie with fudge icing.
Songs of the woodlands.
All living things.
People who are kind.
Pennies in a mason jar.
Exercise every day.
Cute baby animals.
Ice cream just beginning to melt around the edges.
To thine own self be true.
Simple Things Appreciated thoughts came to me after a long dry spell of not writing anything. This ‘writing dry spell’ started to plaque me in mid-October of last year when I began crocheting hats and scarves to give to family members for Christmas.
Actually, it started months before October when I felt the first writer’s block I have ever experienced. I lost all inspiration to write due to a painful event that occurred and left me in confusion and a great sense of loss. I am a spiritually strong woman, so eventually, low energy times begin to rise again and I find myself moving on with renewed faith and love of life.
I hope you enjoy this acrostic poem as much as I did while creating it. Thank you for reading.
