A Simple Pleasure

I watch the hummingbird;
Thinking of the simple pleasure
In small things.

Ah, the pretty beads
And ochre! What joy you’ve given
To so many?

Absolute delight
The colourful butterfly in motion
Tickling the wild rose.

The secret joy
Of getting mail from the letter box.
A beautiful summer’s day!
