Things that make the heart sing

Riding a bike in a thin summer dress with hair loose in the wind

Diving into a clear mountain pool that takes the breathe away

Watching storm clouds gathering in the last glow of day

Being unexpectedly drenched by rain

Giving a gift with no strings attached

Receiving a handwritten letter from a lover

The taste of sweet nectarine when the sun is strong

Walking naked through a forest in foreign lands

Finding a beautiful pebble on a rocky beach

Swimming underwater in a sun-drenched turquoise sea

Listening to rain fall on a very small tent from the comfort of a warm sleeping bag

Watching the moon rise as the sun slips into the sea

… inspired by Sei Shōnagon
