There is bliss
in the little things
In the unbroken rhythm
of sunsets and sunrises
of heartbeats and breath.
My heart lifts
with the sigh of a tranquil sea.
I close my eyes
and savor the warmth
your hands give to mine.
It is quadrille Monday at DVerse and Bjorn invites us to write a 44-word poem using the word Bliss. Cee’s B&W Theme, small subjects, also inspired the theme of this piece. I am also linking with Paula’s Black & White Sunday: After and Before-Y1-07.

Sweet bliss…its in the everyday if we look hard enough ~

The sigh of a tranquil sea – beautiful line within a descriptive poem. Nice!
Thanks, Jilly. 🙂
Hey, Imelda! The Casting Bricks Challenge is open and we would love to have you join in again!
Yay! Jilly, I know. I checked when the month started and I really want to write something. But silly time has been disappearing from my hands lately. I think it doesn’t like me. But I will, I will try to write for the challenge. 🙂 Thanks for reminding me.
It IS a very peaceful thought. I like the way it moves, like it’s alive
Oh! Thanks for the kind words. 🙂
I liked the description of bliss in the unbroken rhythms. They are less stressful and allow one to feel bliss.
Thanks, Frank. 🙂
Lovely shot and lovely poem.
Thanks, Irene. 🙂
“My heart lifts
with the sigh of a tranquil sea.”
I did so enjoy this bit of peace and awareness of bliss in the small things. Thanks to a post by Margret Bednar, I am starting a “bliss list”. I have a shopping list that is backed with a magnet. Never used it for shopping but I took it out of the drawer and crossed out shopping and wrote in bliss. I love this poem and the pics of yours.
I love the groundedness of this.
Thanks, Janice. 😊
Yes – it’s the love of little things the make persuit for bliss something we can handle.
Beautifully written Imelda. Delicate, soft beauty in these two images. Thank you for the double entry 🙂
Thanks, paulo. I am more than glad to post entries whenever possible. 🌸
A sense of wonder that imparts bliss in the daily rhythms and little moments…life’s simple joys!
I have heard that it is the little, ordinary joys of life that make a happy one. I agree as I think that feeling of well being brings contentment.
Thanks, Lynn, for the kind words.
Beautifully written, Imelda!
The bliss of the rhythm of everyday. Wonderful!
Seriously – holding hands is no small thing. I think it a very intimate and personal thing.
It is. I can only hold hands with the people I love and love me back. 😊
Enjoyed reading this post great efforts

love these lines particularly:
"In the unbroken rhythm

of heartbeats and breath."
Oh, Imelda, you express Bliss so perfectly! Love this! 😀 ❤
Thanks, Linda. Your words are much appreciated. 🙂
Apologies for being so late to the reading! Had grandkids with us Sunday through Wednesday. So now….here I am…and loving this post for “bliss.” There is so much truth to your words. We have moments of bliss every day if we just pay attention to receive them as such. A beautiful write.
oh oh, no worries, Lillian. 🙂 All of us have lives to live and grandchildren do need a lot of attention. In fact, they can be quite demanding (based on how my children behave with their grandfolks). Thanks for dropping by. 🙂
Such a moving poem.. beautifully penned, dear Imelda… Happy weekend 😀
Thanks for the kind words, Aquileana. 🙂
