Humble Delights

Humble Delights

Monsoon script of raindrops
On misty panes of heart
Clusters of stars sprinkled
Over toadstools in backyard 

Snow-caked pine cones dangle
Chandeliers of pearls
Crimson jars on kitchen shelves
Chinese lanterns on a string

Flowers sway in the wind
Dreams tethered on stalks
Meandering through life’s alleys
Our charming evening walks

Grannies knit, near
Burning logs in the hearth
Humble delights of domesticity
Homemade happiness
