Reflections of Pleasure

how I relish everyday yet keep silent

tides of aroma coming out the kitchen


several met me , several did I forget
smiles on the faces of guys I enjoyed


daily the thirst and hunger they satiate
taste in the buds having drinks and food


tired of the daily grind, back to my home
comfort to the body relaxing in the bed


ready again thinking of the next venture
relief to the self finshing the task in hand


different hues of flowers, different smells
succulence to the heart strolling in a park


how it remains etched forever in the mind
affection to the kind souls helping in need


out the turmoil, watching moments go by
balance in the mind looking peace around


facing onslaughts, knocking hurdles hard
courage in the veins grappling chaos in life

      Nellieanna. I was having my meal and it tasted so good , added to it was the great smell of aroma. It made me think how such innocuous looking things rejoice our heart and soul. I dwelt on such trivia and this piece appeared.

      I love you presence and comments. Thank you very much.

      It's both sweet and bittersweet. I appreciate the strong present-tense of it. It's very much in 'The Eternal Now".

      Praises for another deep thoughtful and feeling poem!
