Simple Heart Songs

Christina is holding a Simple Things day today.  Simple things that make your heart sing, here are mine....

sunshine peeking through the curtains to start the day
foggy mornings
cool air on my face as I walk
the sun peeping over the horizon smiling hello
baby birds squawking for their mum's to fill their tummy's
pancakes and maple syrup, crunchy bacon
yellow roses
snowy white jasmine scenting the air
creamy white gardenias

walks together holding hands
sunrises and sunsets
the smell of fabric softener on freshly washed clothes
the waft of hot bread from the bakery down the street
hot coffee, vanilla and chai tea
corriander on the chopping board
tomatoes on the vine
hot biscuits just out of the oven

homemade chappatti from hands that love me
the scent of babies just out of the bath
the feel of their hands in mine
crispy white sheets
snuggly wool blankets
smoky outdoor fires
marshmallows on sticks
christmas lights on houses
carols at night
snowy mountain tops
bells on cows necks
fields of wildflowers
rain on the beach
the smell of rain on the earth
long sandy beaches
coconut oil on hot salty skin
the drops of cold water on the outside of my wine glass
the swoosh of the waves aound my feet
the colours in the rock pools

unexpected storms
huge grey clouds

chocolate peanut butter icecream
soft creamy cheese
hot buttery bread
cinnamon spices for apples
sticky date pudding
butterscotch sauce
rainy days in bed
reading a love story that makes me cry
long lazy lunches on weekdays with my love
early morning flower markets
petals falling from crab apple trees
jacaranda carpets on soft green grass
tatty old rabbits

so many things that make my heart sing
so many ways to feel love
