poeming with pleasure (recipe for happiness)

Recipe For Happiness: Home
(Inspired by Lawrence Ferlinghetti)

birds chirping, feet up
on the cozy brown couch,
pleasure in the dripping humid air
with the kindle beside you, 
ice tea at your fingertips, 
sunshine muted
and friendly 
through the blinds, 


the love of your life 
playing soccer
in the backyard 
with the child 
you created together, 
beautiful and free.
