Today's prompt was to write an ode to life's small pleasures.
This is an ode to the little pleasures in my Saturday.
Camellia blossoms in full bloom
candy pink neon hues;
Saturday coffee and papers
an hour hammocked in reading;
the swirl of milk in espresso
delicate smooth artful crema;
the cat asleep at the top of the stairs
sun-napping the landing;
birdsong chiming in the blue air
cherry blossoms everywhere;
nothing to do but loll
in the afternoon's golden embrace;
pizza for dinner with homemade pesto
and wine like honeyed light;
night a feasting of writing, reading;
stars more noticeable than ever now.
