Happiness Is…

I am sharing this with DVerse and this prompt.


Happiness is that bird which wakes me

In the early hours of the morning

With its prayerlike, optimistic singing:

 

So sure of the sun’s soon arrival —

And is the dawn ever downcast? —

That it proclaims it in advance

 

Without the broken eggshells of the past.

Happiness is hearkening to that bird

And experiencing the light of comprehension.
