Poem: Life Is Simple

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Life is simple is a poem about a kitty on the inside looking out when a kitten comes to the window to greet him. They look forward to being there for one another everyday. Watching the two of them play through the glass window reminds me how simple life is if we take time to show others we care.

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon & Garfunkel


Life is Simple

A kitten so playful and free
comes to the window
to visit buddy,
a kitty, on the inside who is looking out.

Oh, how he looks forward to this moment each day,
waiting and wanting to play,
head bunting and pawing
through the glass,
happy to be friends.

Reminding us how simple
life can be,
if we take time
to show we others we care.

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

— Confucius

Yes, Lorna. We have a tendency to make life more complicated than what it really is...thanks for reading.

I love the picture this conjures up Brenda. We can make our lives so complicated and it's always good to stop and realize what really matters.
