I feel happy today
so easy I guess ,it is to say.
Happiness is just a state of mind.
yet for some, very hard to find.
What of tomorrow you ask?
well, that is too hard a task.
What of the next day,
that too I am not quite au-fait.
What is happiness you ask?
well that is quite a rewarding task.
Well ,one should give it a try you say,
ok, let's start with today.
For me it is 5 AM to rise,
with a sad face you might surmise.
No ! not me, 5 is the best part of any day,
that's when sunny ,not dismal grey.
I dream a dream of work to do,
for all of this day my thoughts now accrue.
I grow violets, now my face expects,
Beautiful colours for me to inspect.
With these happy thoughts my day begins,
shower shave and ? Imaginations.
Now, poetic thoughts enter my inner muse,
start positive never think of don'ts and do's.
Simple things make for happy thoughts,
they are the things that cannot be bought.
A cup of tea and honey on toast,
a pleasure that always gives the most.
Working with beautiful blooms,
Shining their light to fill the room.
My thoughts slip down to a lower gear,
Of my sculptures and poems I hold so dear.
Oh my, how happy can one person be,
other thoughts I can now clearly see.
My Bonny Wife and my daughter too,
about all things they are and what they do.
They make me so happy and VERY proud,
I DO, I DO, I SHOUT THIS ALOUD.
Happiness you see is there for you, all around,
Relax, see the Wee Wee things which are abound.
The day for me does not end, when I go to bed,
my happy brain now requires to be fed.
For when I lay my head down to sleep,
all my days happiness ,my dreams will keep.
It's now 5 AM again and a new happiness to be gained,
Violets, blooms, poems, my loves all start again.
You see happiness starts with a frame of mind,
simplicity , your loves and all things kind.
The Auld Yin.
