Happiness Is...


I may be getting addicted to writing silly poems...here's one more :)

Happiness is…

A cane chair under a tree,
A copy of Tuesdays With Morrie,
A cup of piping hot tea
And good company.

A walk in the drizzle in June
Or in the light of the full moon
Or on a lukewarm winter afternoon,
With the radio playing my favourite tune!

A letter in the letterbox,
Writing a reply until the small hours of the clock,
Late night heart-to-heart girl talks,
A cup of warm milk, a blue sweater and my favourite socks.

Breakfast in town on Sunday,
Homemade food cooked my favourite way,
A little banter, a little play
With friends and family makes my day.

Happiness is when the heart sings
And finds the biggest joys in the smallest things,
In the lovely gifts that life brings.
That’s when happiness takes wings : )

What a beautiful poem reminding us of the vast resevoir of happiness available to us at any moment via life's smallest things - which become themselves vast through being seen through the eyes and spirit of the poet.
Thank you.
