the beauty of simplicity is an art in itself

toes touching the dewy summer morning blades of grass

the shock of life received when splashing your face with cool water,

this is the beauty of simplicity.


often we forget to stop and breathe

when you have paperwork, deadlines

and overhead lights shining on your cubicle

you forget.


forget the softness of cool beach sand between your toes

the warmth in your belly from the flicker of affection in a lover's eyes

a sunny morning that holds no commitments

the innocence of a child's grin

forgotten in the fast pace of life.
