Zest for Life

Zest For Life
zest for living
Timelessly giving
 

Rejoicing in others
celebrating self

 
Finding happiness
In every stick, stone

 
Knowing well a glass half
full is better than none

 
trees blossoming or denuded
equally pretty sights
 
Seasons come and go as
Do happy and sad times

 
Wise one is that who remains
Unmoved by vagaries of time

 
playful puppy, kittens, skipping child
guileless, happy, uncomplicated

 
old shoes, well fitted clothes
finely tuned mind, no picked bones

 
happy cackling elders, eyes faded
treasure troves of folklore, not jaded

 
spurned in love, so what
better mate maybe in store

 
sucking life’s orange every moment
living to the hilt, no regrets, lament

 
A smile always lighting up the face
Attracting, eliciting return smiles

 
Mopping pain and angst from suffering eyes
Ever firefly, incandescent joy lighting up sky

 
An untrammeled zest for life
Is best thing costing no tithe
