Simple Pleasures

 How often did you enjoy roasted peanuts?

  On a cold winter afternoon not walnuts

How many times you sipped juicy cane sugar?

       Not fizz colas or beverages sugar free

Ate a humble pie not frosted whipped cream

    Dug teeth in roasted corn that’s what joy seems

We long for distant pleasures in our dreams

  When simple pleasures around us reign supreme

PS- The pic is mine


  1. it's a haunting kind of pic. Which place?
    the poem is lovely with life's truth. And it rhymed so well too :)

    1. The place inthe picture is taken onone of the islands close to Krabi in Thailand. I am happy you liked the verse:)
