Everything has beauty but no one ever sees it -Confucius



Did you ever notice?


The green of the washed leaves just after rains
The pink of smiles and brown of stains


The small mud foot prints on the floor
Stained postcards in the store



The pit pat of rain drops on your window
The smear of hands on your pillow


Smell of a new book
Rush of blood at that first look


The dance of joy on the street
The chuckle of Grand Ma when you meet


Blackened window by the kitchen
With smoked patterns that are hidden


The dark green circles on her wrist
Peace of night and morning mist


The crackling of veggies in the pan
The red of December and yellow of Jan


Ring of glass on the table
Mr. Thumpkin and game of pebbles


Smell of rains and rustle of leaves 
Footsteps on the door and shuffle of keys

Did you ever notice?

Everything has poetry but not everyone can write it
Everything has music but who can sing it ?
Everything has beauty but no one ever sees it -  Confucius


A special thanks to my dear friend and blogger Leo for inspiring the theme

  1. Simple and beautiful :) Sometimes we don't notice the little things. Some of those, if not all, bring us happiness.

  2. he small mud foot prints on the floor

    These are the lines I liked best. Only a poet and a lover of life can rhapsodise about muddy footprints.
    Loved it.
