Hidden Wonders of the World

Hidden Wonders of the World

To attain contentment, happiness and joy, appreciation is key
Don’t go leaping into the unknown, for it may not bring you glee
The greatest pleasures can come from the tiniest things, from a trivial sight or sound
To reap the seeds of happiness sowed, just look all around.

A small goodnight kiss before you sleep, the incessant chirping of the birds
The first sip of a beverage when you’re thirsty or a few complimentary words
Fifteen minutes more to nap, the sound of your old favourite tune
Sudden success when the expectation is failure or the shimmering of the moon.

No need for hurrying into the darkness, look before you leap
Often what you’re searching for is already there though asleep
Sometimes even the ultimate pleasure comes from the smallest sight or sound
To reap the seeds of happiness, just look all around.

Note: Recently one of the readers in the blog suggested that I should write a poem about the simpler joys of life. I thought this would be a brilliant idea and so I gave it a go. Hope you enjoy reading it.

    Well written verses, Saanya. Proud of you. Keep them coming, on this theme. We all need to revisit basics of what makes us happy and it’s an obligation to ourselves. Well done!
