LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE


Small is Beautiful - Leopold Kohr

For me, little things in life matter. These are the moments that I cherish or will cherish years later. I draw from this reservoir of memories from time to time. This brings a smile to my face when I am alone or facing a difficult moment in my life.

Sweet and special moments like - 

A twinkle in my 
Grand Ma's eyes
A hint of pride in my 
Grand Pa's eyes -
On my very existence 
On my achievements
Brings me delight

Father's scolding
Mothers Advice
Keeps me away 
from vice

Arguing with my brother
Playing a prank 
on my little sister
Later,
laughing on silly Jokes
as if nothing happened
our bonds 
become stronger

Joy of dancing 
in the rain
takes away 
my pain

Sumptuous meals
Pizza with extra cheese,
eating my own baked cakes
trial and triumph
of cooking new dishes

Birthday Surprises
Trips with friends 
during year end

Late night movies
Sometimes,
Early morning Jogs
Yoga for health
Dhyan for mental wealth

Contemplation
Reflection and
Daydreaming

Watching sunset and
occasional sunrise

When my husband 
brings breakfast in bed,
when he
appreciates me and
adores me
Long drives with him
and
Weekend getaway trips

Visiting home for
Dussera, Diwali, Holi

The list is endless
This constitutes my life

Deriving pleasure 
from the activities
and emotions 
ingrained in the
very fabric my
everyday life,
On the sheer bliss
of my being!

Little things in life
bring a smile,
Little things 
that are free,
Little things 
mean a lot to me!
Little things -
the reason for my
happiness 😊

  7. In this day and age of outward moving culture we are often engrossed in gadgets. We tend to neglect little joys that we experience from small things in our lives. A beautiful poem.
