The Prompt: Simplicity

I love the simple things;

Clear blue sky, clean fresh air,
Cup of tea, cake to share.

My baby nephew’s cheeky grin,
Every cuddle makes my heart spin.

Walks with Stella, and, butterflies,
Mayonnaise, on curly fries.

Jeans, jumpers, comfy shoes,
Happy endings, all good news.

Ham sandwich, a chocolate bar,
No traffic jams, when I’m in the car.

Tulips, poppies, a pretty rainbow,
Night-time, when a full moon’s on show.

Ponies grazing, in a field,
Highland cattle, and the horns they wield.

Friendly hellos, a hug from a friend,
Reading snail mail that my penpals send.

Puppy paws and a wagging tail,
To make me smile – they never fail.

Do you love the simple things?
