Those Little Things – a little nonsense poem

We often forget about those little things in our lives, those tiny, seemingly insignificant things that give us enjoyment.


Trees of pine and a hint of sunshine.

Oatmeal packets and tennis rackets.

Butterfly wings and flowers in spring.

The Traveling Wilburys and bumblebees.

Doctor Who fans and frying pans.

Windows, IBM, HP, and Dell.

Written works that may never sell.

Bad jokes, puns, and non-sequiturs.

In my life, I’ve loved them all.

All of these things,

These little things,

They make me feel good.

They make me feel great,

They’re small and subtle,

Insignificant and plain,

But I’m grateful for them all the same.
