Trifling Pleasures

Sometimes it isn’t
a major event
or something sudden
to make you content
it could be a thrill
something fate has meant
a mark of goodwill
bringing smiles reminiscent

A thoughtful gesture
will bring
to someone’s step
a happy spring,
or a genial smile
sans mischief, or guile
Seeing their gratification
and your resulting satisfaction
will make it seem worthwhile

When you awake
nigh on daybreak
in bed snug
like under a drug
feeling a fulfilment deep
then drifting back to sleep

Just a lovely eve
with the vestiges of light
poised to leave
soon to be night
ensconced on a bench, I
let out a wistful sigh
