Simple Pleasures

family cluster
joie de vive

old jokes told
laughing tears rolling

pressed against my arm
child's warm hand

launching spring
sap green sprouts peeking
first robin

coffee aroma
arrival of a new day

They are all lovely. The pressing of the child's palm particularly touched my heart. jodi wildvines.blogspot.com

The last one made me smile.
Too often coffee means another day at the office for me. But yes, you are right, it is also a new day and therefore an opportunity.

Jo said...

Oh they are all so good, but how I love the first and third....yes, especially the third, it is magical.

So much of our lives are filled with simple pleasures if we but notice. You have brought my attention to many I have also shared. I love my coffee in the morning too. Lovely.

I liked all of them, but especially the one about old jokes and laughing. Time spent with family and friends is all too short.

Becca said...

These are all so rich and evocative - beautiful :)
I especially love the homage to coffee!

These are so true.

Old jokes told
laughing tear rolling

is my favorite...

At a family gathering last week I noticed very little laughter;
very little silliness. We need little ones around to remind us.
Thanks again for smiles.

Really resonate with that last one. Even though I've never drunk coffee, the smell of it in the morning is quite something delightful ....

Hi Sue! Your haiku are always such a wonderful treat! I love them all and especially the lines "laughing tears rolling" and "sap green sprouts peeking" -- beautiful!

Gilson said...

Wow! Those very fine words echoed color and scent in my head. Well done, Sue! Your work is outstanding.
