happiness

happiness alights
in the moment of idea
the rapt work of creation
a thing made that speaks your soul

happiness meanders
whispering through the forest
stealing the breath in beauty
the mystery of which you are part

happiness skips
pausing long enough to see
to offer a smile or a gentle word
an act of aid unsullied by strings

happiness enfolds
seeing the light in your eyes
feeling the touch of your hand
the warmth of you nearΒ 

alive with creativity
awake in spirit
woven by community
blossoming between souls:
in connection, there to be discovered.

  2. This piece reminds me of every good news story I read. Like the one the other day where a regular customer tipped the waitstaff with about 15.000!
