Simple Pleasures ✻ A Place to Be Inspired

Is it really only six months since I was here?

I haven’t written as much as I would like since my return

to the busy routine we call life


Was I really living in this rushing place?

Through Fortune’s grace, I’ve slowed the pace


Yet on this raw March day

my mind goes back to time by the lake

sitting at this table, in front of this blessing

time slowing down

and words flowing


I close my eyes and I’m there again

peaceful and still

yet here


  1. This was lovely. I love when I’m transported like this to languid times by a lake or a mountain, in the heat, when the minutes seem to tick by slower. Sigh. What a wonderful thought.

  2. Isn’t it interesting that all we have to do is close our eyes and we are transported to another place. Lovely poem…

  3. Only the next time you’re there, you’ll look out, across the great expanse, and see Zia and me as we side-stroke our way from Michigan’s shore. 🙂
    A beautiful post, Mar.

  4. Lovely post…I know exactly how you feel. I think about sitting on the deck of our little cottage in Maine in the summer and looking out at the lake.
