One Deep Breath-Simple Pleasures

I heartily endorse indulgence in life’s simple pleasures, and the older I get, the more simple my pleasures seem to become! If I were to plan an entire day for myself filled with favorite little luxuries, this might describe it:
life’s little luxuries
a haiku series

small treasure of life
indulgence well deserved
refreshes the soul

weekly bookstore idyll
perusing shiny new tomes
book lovers delight

café awaits me
double espresso please ~
tiny cup of fuel

lunch with a friend
secrets shared heart to heart
afternoon delight

hot tea by the fire
dispels winter wind
warms body and soul

steam curls from the tub
wafting troubles away
relaxing long soak

day of small pleasures
renews my weary heart~
how lucky am I?

  1. perfect, perfect, and may i say…perfect!
    the idea…it’s execution (in the “accomplishment” sense, NOT in the “beheading” sense)’s imagery…sounds like a plan 🙂

    p.s. who will be the lunch friend? pick me! pick me!

  2. Such a great idea, a pleasurable list of simply pleasing haiku! I love every single one of them, love they way you wrote them, love the idea of doing them!

  3. Each of these is a small treasure in itself, and together they make me sigh. Little bits of joy that come together to relax and rejuvenate.

    When was the last time you indulged in some of these?

  4. “day of small pleasures” I love that line. I just sat in the cafe at Wegmans with my notebook, pen, and coffee and was happily overcome by a feeling that small pleasures were piling one on top of the other on my head. It was just as your piece described. Lovely.

  5. I see Diedre used the word I was thinking as I read your scrumptious haiku – delicious! I love all of your simple pleasures, only I´d switch the coffee to tea. Wonderful!

  6. ahhhhhhh. Sometimes I don’t notice how much tension I’m carrying around until something (like reading your series) loosens the knots. Thanks.
