I tried the new ‘Happiness’ word set, and frankly, I’m not overjoyed. Three ‘happiness’, plus a ‘happy’, a ‘laugh’, two ‘laughter’, two ‘rainbow’ endless ‘sun’, ‘shine’ and ‘sunshine’ and there’s even a single tile of ‘blue sky’. There is such a thing as egging the pudding.
Happiness by the yard
The warmth of between shines
beneath the dark above.
shall we try for wonder,
the full sunshines of the weather report?
Will she give her heart to this one or to that?
All this dancing together hand in hand,
this spring of love and laughter
sounds like wishing, a desire to be surprised
Life must be fun,
a procession of days without rain,
endless smiles, starry skies,
and we always dare to eat that peach.
Bluebirds and rainbows, unicorns too, no doubt
and love-flowers press us to enjoy, look away
But barefoot bliss is strewn with the jagged fragments
of those dreams that never came true,
the nagging hand in the back,
pushing to the edge and whispering,
