My Window On Life.


This simple little poem hopefully proves that we do not always need long words to pass that message of contentment and happiness along. I hope you enjoy.


Life is so precious

Moments to care;

Gems and treasures

Moments to share.

Rainbows are blessed

Colours enhance;

Raindrops magical

Nature's dance .

Each second flows

Minutes multiply;

Hours and days

Oh how they fly.

The cow's in the lea

Horses a-grazing;

Fulfilment we crave

Happiness overflowing

Waves a-crashing

Cliffs steely grey;

But all add colour

To each new day.

Each brand new dawn

My heart so true;

From my window

I share with you.

I hope you've enjoyed this simple little poem and it is so nice to be back here on HubPages once again. Starting a full time and very demanding job left little time for writing and I needed that break away but as every writer knows that writing bug will never leave us alone for longer than deemed necessary!!!! I am going with the flow and time will tell how often I am able to read and publish on here. I am now also looking forward to getting back in touch with old friends and making new ones.

All the best from my corner of Wales.

I'm trying to get back in to HubPages and renew some old connections here. It was wonderful to start my day off with your lovely poem. Hope you are still writing.

The simple things of life bring us much pleasure. Your poem refreshed my joy of viewing the world. I could see the activities from my window.

Eddy, it's nice to see you back! Love the poem.

I so relate to your note at the end of the poem. I, too, have gone back to work full time. As the result, I haven't posted but once since I did. I can't even keep current with my HP reading, but I'm trying!

I hope your new job is working out well and life is good for you and Dai!

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on August 17, 2016:

Beautiful poem Eddy. Very moving. Thanks for sharing and welcome back.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on August 17, 2016:


I love it, and it is not simple

It is the feeling of complexity

Expressed simplistically

That may make it seem to be

With complex feelings intertwined

Expressed in every line

That will do it every time.

Blessings my dear friend, I am so glad you are back.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on August 13, 2016:

Glad your back sis. This is so lovely I was looking out that window with you.

Lovely poem and enjoyed reading.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on August 13, 2016:

Well, speaking as one of those old friends, I am so happy to see you back here. Simple poem and yet a powerful message. Sometimes, long words get in the way of the meaning, don't you think? :)

hugs from Olympia

It's so lovely to have you back, Eddy, and with such a sweet poem and image, too. I'm afraid I haven't been on hub pages so much lately, too busy with writing books.

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on August 12, 2016:


I'm thrilled the writing bug has bitten you again and you now have some time to write. Just didn't feel like the 'old hub pages' without you. Your poem is lovely and I enjoyed reading it.

Hugs from me,
