Chris of Enchanted Oak has issued a challenge which is really very easy. To quote Chris, "Write on your blog on Saturday or Sunday about the simple things that bless you and include a link to my blog. Then pop in to my blog and tell me you’ve posted your “Simple Things.” I’ll visit you, we’ll visit each other, and for each blog that participates, my family will donate $2.00 to the Heartline Ministries medical clinic in Haiti. Make a list, write a poem, do a story, whatever floats your boat."
Pastel colors, like an artist's palette,
in the early morning sky,
The cheerful song of mockingbirds,
as they spread their wings to fly.
The rippling flow of mountain streams,
from melting high Sierra snow,
Sharing whispered words of love,
On a beach where tradewinds blow.
The first taste of creamy ice cream,
On a blistering summer day,
Someone dear who offers comfort,
To wipe the tears away.
Spring rains that lightly fall,
And make us dance about in glee,
A real letter in the mailbox,
Sent from you to me.
A single perfect rose,
A high school marching band,
A baby's gurgling laugh,
These all are simply grand!
