Haiku No. 436: Pleasure Seeking

Wind in our faces
The sun’s warmth on our bare skin
Breeze ruffling our hair

White puffy clouds and
Grass covered with morning dew
Stars twinkling at night

The moon reflecting
On still waters leads us home
Fullness of silence

Deep in the psyche
Pleasures of the universe
Renews weary souls

I read an article the other day, about a group of people in Denmark who take housebound elderly and handicapped people out for bike rides. They have a side car attached to the bike in which the passenger sits, happily experiencing the outdoors again. For many it is the first time in a long time they have felt or seen the wonders of nature that many of us take for granted every day.

    • Thank you so much trE! I’m so happy you liked it. The article gave me a lift, and there was a picture of an elderly woman riding in the side car, with this enormous smile, the wind blowing her hair and I thought what a wonderful gift it was, that this young man gave her that ride.
