Some Of Life's Little Pleasures.

Updated on December 26, 2009

Some of life's little pleasures

Into our lungs
we draw each day
the essential gases
and nutrients that are
required to survive,
but we also draw in
the scent of a woman,
the perfume of a rose,
the sweet tang

of vintage wine,
smoke of various

herbs and tobaccos
and many other

pleasures along the way
what a sweet treat

it is to breathe life
to its fullest and come

away wanting more

To be tethered
by a strip of land
to the beach

and the sea,
to hear it's

ancient whispers
in the night,
and to step

off a porch
and onto the stretches
of endless sand and ocean,
savoring the tang
and the spray.

This is where I will be
when I am old,
on the edge of
some vast continent,
enjoying the island
I have made of all
of the rest

of the world.
