Simple things

For a moment in time I want to put aside the problems of the world and turn to beauty.

My gaze turns to the ocean in front of me, the greys of the weathered sky soft, the ocean, after days of wind, calm.

People out and about, walking, running, drinking coffee.

Simple things. Yet in the simplicity, everything. 

When things fall apart, which they tend to do, it is the simple things we long for.

Yet when we have the simple things, we forget just how precious they are.

Today I revere the simple things.
