The Simplest Thing.
It’s a wet and windy, winter’s day
Outside, the trees dance and sway
Like restless ghosts in the wind and rain
Raindrops rage against the window pane
Then slowly slide and trickle down ‘til
They come to rest on the windowsill
The glowering light catches each raindrop
Like a string of diamonds, or a crystal teardrop
Sparkling like fireflies in old jam jars
A transparent curtain of twinkling stars
A Robin, alights on the old garden gates
Feathers all ruffled and patiently waits
Raindrops hang from the old rusty bars
Sparkling like diamonds or a thousand stars
There is so much beauty, to be found
If we just open our eyes and look around
Such peace and tranquillity we can find
When we listen and still the restless mind
Look for the joy in the simplest thing
Enjoy the moment and hear your Heart sing.
