When you take away all the excess,
All the decorations,
You are left with the simple things,
The real things.
The feeling of being nervous and
The feeling of the sequential relief.
The feeling of being excited,
The feeling of sadness,
The sensation of laughter until the cheeks hurt.
The beauty of a sunset.
The phenomenon of uncontrollable tingles.
The enthusiasm that emerges from a shooting star.
The fascination of an owl, an albatross or a firefly.
The tranquility of human touch.
Watching maple keys fall from above.
Stepping on sand in bare feet.
Catching someone smiling to themselves.
Singing at the top of your lungs.
Hearing the song of a bird.
Smelling the rain.
