The fragrance of delight

when we were young
and small
and the simple pleasure
of a day in the garden,
a shell from the beach,
a run through the sprinkler,
was all that we needed
to bring forth a smile?
Perhaps it is time
to run through the garden,
take a walk on the beach,
listen to the ocean,
delight in the fragrance
of wet grass, or seaweed,
of flowers
or pine trees...
where can we go
that will look, and feel
and smell and sound
like home?
