Simplicity - One Deep Breath

I've been away from One Deep Breath for a while and am very glad to be back. Here is my offering for the week on the theme of Simplicity.



Sim' pli' ci' ty's goal
To make life easily lived
Ah! Blessed relief.

What a lovely post...I agree that we should live more simply...I just need to practice it much more than I do!

As I get older, I find myself craving more and more for a simpler life and I'm working towards that goal...your poem says it all! xox

It is very true that sometimes the simple things in a life are sometimes the ones that gives you greater happiness!

Thank you for visiting my page, btw.
It means a lot!

Such a true saying, yet not easily done. It is something I am striving for.

Oh, I like that, Annie!

As you have probably read, living in our "Episcopal" diocese of Fort Worth is certainly not simple.

Oh simplicity - my mum says that nothing is ever simple or straightforward - and sometimes I'm prone to quote and agree!

And that space after that deep breath, the space before the next... oh such bliss...

Achievig simplicity must be the hardest thing. All our culture is pushing us to always want MORE...

Patois said...

"Blessed relief," indeed! Very fun poem.

Yes, we need to take time to sit and just be...it's great to have you back!

A simple wish but a very difficult goal to achieve, alas.
I like the unusual style of the opening line (not so simple though...).
