Happiness is cool breeze of ocean’s bliss.
It is a warm spot in the sand.
Happiness is the lull of the waves
gently pounding and then retreating.
Happiness is ruby-throated hummingbirds
and fluttering butterflies with tiger tails.
Happiness is the red, red rose
which tickles my nose, when indulged.
Happiness is lush, green and bountiful –
a garden, hedgerow, a vineyard.
Happiness fills my soul again,
I welcome my long, lost friend.
