Simple Living

Following bliss
from blossom to blossom.
Impulse to impulse
a message appears.
Following footprints,
enrapt in  the lesson
free of exams
or keeping-up fears.
Each movement a chance
to discover new senses,
new meanings, new methods,
new facets and forms.
To swoop into dance,
heal with celebration,
imbue inspiration,
play out loud in mad storm.
It’s not about amassing a fortune,
elevation, acclaim,
becoming a star.
It’s not about
living up to some value,
but valuing living because
here you are!

  1. Hi! I just wanted to say thank you for your words. I’ve been following you for a while now and this poem, in particular, is a beautiful reflection of the way I’ve felt as well, about nature, about life. I’ve even done the exact same thing, going from flower to flower on a spring day like a honeybee. No need to think, no need to force myself to be anything other than just delighted. This poem reminded me today of the truth of that innocence, that play, that joy. Thank you!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
