Simple Luxury

Beneath the sunlight, a few paces from the shade
Peace held its arms wide open.
Horizontal on a cart, millimetres from the foliage
Exhaustion finally gave in.
Knelt beside a puddle of murky water
Relief and acknowledgement met halfway.
Barefoot through the rubble, past gloomy alleys
Freedom took flight in the bravest of manners.
To witness such simplicities, such a do away of
Unnecessary inhibitions – is what draws us into
The core of existence.
To understand the utmost basic meaning there is
To living and giving.
‘Twas but easy to take all I’ve got and build a palace
Of a life. But with every sight of a down to earth notion
It became fuller to dwell in these non-fancies.

– Mia.
