Small Pleasures

The small pleasures of the day
fit themselves into the pulses of my heart:
sunlight warm on the bare branches of the backyard maple,
coffee hot in a forsythia mug, the soft click of the refrigerator,
plump blueberries from Chile, full of flavor and rich with cream.

We live in memory and desire,
but this is the only reality,
this moment,
these pleasures.
