Happiness Is…


A walk at dawn, a chill in the air
A “Good Morning,” here, a “Hello” there
The rising sun, swaying petals, singing birds
Nodding fox-tails… a few kind words.

It’s the sound of laughter that wraps the heart
Smell of brewing coffee, baked bread and tart
Glow of candles, in the dark
Warm water baths, dew-kissed grass in the park

Happiness is, a home filled with love; safe and secure
Standing at the altar; hopeful, free and pure
Snugly tucked in a blanket; downy, soft and warm
Standing afloat strong, in the eye of a storm

It’s the tranquility, in the silence of the night-
A sparkle in the eyes, that shine and light
The making of peace with the sky and the earth
Of being one with them all, and finding no dearth

Happiness is-
Contentment and love; for all that will be and is

Food for thought: What does happiness mean to you? Have you given it a thought? If you haven’t, think about it now. What is it makes your soul smile? Write it down…all the little things and the big things. Then work backwards to do the things that give you real happiness. A principle advocated by many life-coaches. It actually works.

    A beautifully uplifting poem Smitha – it’s many of those small things that I think make for happiness.

      I just felt ‘happy’ writing it. So, I’m so glad you found it uplifting too. Felt it, smelt it, touched it as I wrote it and felt lighter just like receiving your comments. Thank you Andrea!
