Late Night Poetry #25: Little Delights

A poem of small delights based on a prompt ‘Write about your little joys’ from Winter Tangerine’s 2018 prompts.

Little Delights

Puddles of shadows from the lights on the walls,
a rise in cadence as my mother takes her calls,
the fall of the ivy as it grows down the stairs,
the unbidden smile that shows someone cares.

A cup of tea full of the sighs of the day,
a mist that lets through one solitary ray,
the scent of perfume that lingers in the room,
the laughter at finding an odd shaped legume.

The rush of spinning in an office chair,
a thrill as the plane lifts us up in the air,
the candle of each day beginning again,
the love that is found in brief showers of rain.

    1. There are so many! It made me try to be more specific about the ones I don’t usually think about so it was a very uplifting exercise 🙂 The photo is from Unsplash – it’s lovely!
