Favorite Things...

Over at Jingle Poetry this week, the topic for Poetry Potluck is 'A few of my favorite things'...  I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to share a little more of myself than I usually do, and join others in sharing some wonderful poetry written by all the great poets hanging out there...  Please come join in all the fun.

Children playing, sliding on slides,
Climbing trees, swinging on swings,
Puppies discovering butterflies,
These are a few of my favorite things...

Taking a long walk in the moonlit night,
Sharing memories tender, for joy it brings,
With friends, spending time always feels right,
These are a few of my favorite things...

Walking down a forest path as it winds,
Sitting beneath the stars as the river sings,
Watching animals in nature, any of all kinds,
These are a few of my favorite things...

Reading poetry and words that are kin,
Writing tales to share, thought ponderings,
Listening to soft music, chocolates in tin,
These are a few of my favorite things...

Spending quiet time looking out to the sea,
Discovering life's mysteries and all it brings,
Creating art and words, these are for me,
These are a few of my favorite things.

This is priceless. You didn't leave anything to be added. This is exactly I'd have chosen to say but maybe I'd not have been able to express it so very beautifully!

Loved every bit of it. :-)

Thanks for visiting me, Reflections! It's a pleasure to see you.
