The Little Things

By
It’s the little things
that make life work living, like

smashing a crosscourt forehand


and watching yellow bits drift then burrow in your strings

delivering the final words of a speech


followed by a thundering applause

yawning as you finish a poem


at 1:00 in the morning when even the moon

craves sleep

strumming your first bar chord


with callused fingertips, numb and swollen

awakening to Led Zeppelin


and telling the sun “Today I’ll show him that I really do care,”

and it takes a wise being
to realize it.

It's those little things that make life worth living, isn't it? The things you don't think about- that Zeppelin song on the radio, those clouds that make you think of happiness, videos of old concerts...it just makes life better
