Repost:


Happiness

Happiness flows in little drops
From lovers sweet to ice cream pops
From making snowballs and sand piles
From laughing tears or pleasant wiles

Happiness flows in tacit turns
From smiling inlets and returns
From meeting friends of common core
Some people coming through the door

Happiness is El Do-Ra-Do
Or the sighting of a rainbow
A moment on a traveling tour
The fulfillment of a brochure

Happiness is a birthday cake
A candle blown a wish you make
The gaining of another year
And to some, just an ice cold beer

The comfort of the place you are
Or just a light beam from a star

Happiness is what you make of it Sy, and for me today happiness is a 3 mile walk to a beach I have never been to so I can see my wee dog have a blast in the sand and water.  Enjoy your day and don't forget to spread your happiness as you go, like you do here.

Though 'happiness' be a grand-elusive
'critter' for me.....

this is, most assuredly, a fine 'write'!:

I particularly liked:

"Happiness flows in tacit turns
From smiling inlets and returns
From meeting friends of common core..."

much applause!

Happiness is reading Sy
his words can make you smile or sigh,
for everything he says is true
as 'wise of age' comes shining through!
