Happiness is…

Happiness is like a deep blue sky
and days spent by the sea
A contended realisation that
this is how life’s meant to be
They say the grass is greener
on the other side
But it’s looking pretty good right here
and in that I have some pride

It doesn’t take an awful lot-
Just opening up your eyes
and looking all around you
might fill you with surprise
As a poet I can vouch for that
as not a day goes past
When I don’t see some wonder
‘Tho life sometimes is fast

It need not be a mountain
or a giant waterfall
as a little wayside flower
is sometimes just as wonderful
It could simply be a smile
from a stranger passing by
which you return with some reluctance
as you’re feeling a bit shy

It’s a lot about acceptance
that the grass is green just where you are
And not somewhere more ethereal
you glimpsed once from afar
Happiness, it’s true to say
in a contented mind
is a partnership with life
and the wonders still to find

    Jemverse is one of my favorite blogs on WordPress. Jem has a way as a wordsmith that I can feel and we both have an affinity for the sea.
