Things that Make me Happy – A short poem

This poem was written in response to a challenge set by Esther Chilton. See link below:

The challenge is to write a short story, poem or limerick about the things that make you happy.

Well here is my attempt:


An adventure to explore beyond my front door.

A place to call home when I’ve finished my roam.

My wonderful friends to make amends

for those hateful few, who spoil the crew.

It’s these simple things that somehow brings,

Though they may be small, the most happiness of all.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
