These Are the Things
(This is a simple book. Art direction up to artist.)
These are the things I like to hear:
The hum of a bee box.
The sound of waves from my bed.
Trees in hard wind.
Three types of music at once.
A busy market.
These are the things I like to smell:
Honey from a bee box.
Hot donuts at a circus.
The smell of footy rooms.
A room full of books.
These are the things I like to taste:
Ice water as it goes down my throat.
The saltiness of a day at the beach.
Sweat when I’ve tried really hard.
A peach from a tree.
These are the things I like to touch:
A dog’s ears.
A horse’s neck.
Sand in my feet.
A good skimming stone.
These are the things I like to see:
A full moon.
The garbage truck at 5am.
Dogs lazing in the sun.
A good race.
These are the things I like to feel:
The sun on my skin.
The warmth of a camp fire.
The fall into dreams.
These are the things I like to do:
Laze in a breeze.
Go to the beach.
Go to the market.
These are the things I like to imagine:
A big kite!
Hitting a six off Dad.
Walking on the moon.
Simple things, but good things, I hope.
