A Simple Pleasure

  • A simple pleasure.
    • A piece of joy stolen from a disaster,
    • Boldly taken yesterday and today.
  • A simple pleasure.
    • A bit of sun on a cloudy day.
    • Open up to the feel inside and outside.
  • A simple pleasure.
    • A hug in the middle of an argument.
    • Grasp it tightly, hold it firmly.
  • A simple pleasure.
    • A rare jewel among the rocks and boulders.
    • Well worth the effort.

  • I was reveling in taking simple pleasure from a hug in the middle of an argument, a smile during that crisis, and realizing how rare it was.  I remembered how it deflated the heated exchanges, and brought a feeling of partnership into moving to compassion and compromise.  A win – win for both of us.
