Is this bliss - a poem

What is bliss?

The simple things of life can be blissful, if you can take the time to enjoy it. There is love in the air, everywhere... you just need to feel it, embrace and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Every moment that is enjoyed, treasured and relished is a storehouse of memories, that you can draw out, enjoy and smile with love. It is bliss.. it is this..

These are what help you through difficult times, happy memories, mental pictures, lively moments and loving thoughts.. become a child enjoy every moment and make the best of it . It has never failed me..I hope you can see through these words what I mean...

Go on get your own bliss..............


What is bliss?

Is it this?

The kiss that alights

On your lips,

Like the morning mist!

Was it the Rose,

Swaying as the wind blows,

Tantalizing your senses,

Thawing the heart that froze,

In longings throes?

The butterfly,

That flits across the sky,

In blazing colorful flight,

Rapturously draws a sigh,

That is almost a cry!

The trilling song,

Those little birds sing,

Sweetly in the morn,

And skillfully enslaves your heart along,

Where happy memories throng!

The sunbeam smile,

Of the little babe,

Gurgling sweetly, beguile,

Making every  moment worthwhile!

The solitary pup,

That you picked up,

Snuggles rightup,

Under your chin and into your heart!

Or the gaze

That grazed your face,

With warmth and love,

And sweet embrace,

Leaving no breathing space.

Is it bliss ?

That you ask,

It will stay,

And never stray,

To another face,

Or into vacant space,


Is it this,

The eyes that see,

Melts down to where your love may be,

Snatches the heart so greedily

Dissolving you in glee!

Is it bliss?

Is it this?

shimmering Dawn, you call them bliss and the world know them as smile, wink, laughter, stare, love, kiss, embrace, affection, color, empathy, chirping, flight, touch and so on. Wonder, we all go through them daily, yet seek bliss in heaven !

My friend, you have that keen look in your eyes that recognizes bliss hidden in all simple-looking things/happenings. Lovely poem and the world needs such stuff so badly. Voted up and shared.
