The sheer beauty of our world at times
leaves me gasping for breath as rhymes
swirl and twirl and dance in my mind;
wanting to share, searching to find
words. Words that describe the purest joy
for life; for love between girl and boy;
of hearts and minds and souls shared by two;
Special, so special, this joy of you.
Delicate blossoms; bright, cheery faces;
the laughter of children; a smile that graces
your face. A smile on one that is now on two.
The perfume I wear; it reminds me of you.
The rustle of wind in grey, ghostly gums;
the kookaburra’s laugh; the bee as it hums
spreading new life for all to see.
How beautiful, so beautiful, this world is to me.
The peace that I find in mountains sublime;
in mirror-like lakes forgotten by time;
on a rainforest walk; the thin winding track
where the whipbirds’ song is a slow rising crack.
The smell of fresh coffee and freshly baked bread.
Oh the crustiest please! With cheese my spread!
A Sunday morning and a warm croissant;
with bacon and eggs! What more could I want!
A rainy day snuggled up in my bed.
Gossamer paintings that hang in my head.
A colourful rainbow; so cheery and bright!
Oh, how did He get it so very right!
Joy is mine; it is everywhere!
What are your joys? Would you care to share?
