Here’s to Small Pleasures! Day 18 of NaPoWriMo 2020

Small Pleasures

That last sip of coffee when you thought that you were through.
A lazy sleep-in Saturday with nothing much to do.
A walk through fields with children or a late-night talk with friends.
When you know just where to look, the pleasure never ends.
That last square of chocolate. The popping of a blister.
Getting there to lick the icing spoon before your sister.
Summer nights with highway noises from a block away.
Knowing that you’ll take that road away from here one day.
Constant daily pleasures are a matter of the mind.
Some pleasures of the present, others of the future kind.

 

Like Chocolate? Here is a song by someone else who does. Me! Lyrics by Judy Dykstra-Brown, music and presentation by Christin Anfossie: https://grieflessons.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/chocolate.mp3

Today’sNaPoWriMo prompt is to write an ode to small pleasures.
