Our favorite little distractions

By C.Z.Published 9 months ago 1 min read

Dimples on a sweetheart, soft like marzipan

In dim lit rooms, reaching out and holding hands

Softly speaking lovely words, to win or to woo

The sweetest of all replies, the simple ‘I love you’

Raindrops washing away the dust from an old day

Afterwards inhaling the scent of gently disturbed clay

Colorful sunsets, colorless nights

To gaze upon the squirrels having silly little fights

In all the world these precious moments abound

Or distractions I suppose, if you prefer the sound

Nearly all of life can be distracting I’ve found

    Oh that last line...perfectly sums it up. This was wonderfully dreamy through the rhyme and wording but it had such an underlying substance to it. Really well done :)
