! ! A Happy Person

Rating: 3.6
Storm blown ripples
line my weathered brow,
face a map of life’s journey,
of striving, disappointments
happiness and joy.

The winds of sorrow,
and displeasure have
left their mark on
my furrowed brow, but
my sparkling crows feet,
eyes, are happy lines.

Although
the sad waters have left
their lines of memory,
there are no tears
for past events to fill up
dry lakes of discontent,
and my now happy smile,
helps smooth the waters of
my still much wrinkled face.

Flowers of hope have opened,
blossoms of bliss bloomed,
and seas of tranquillity and
peace now fill my soul and
my heart is filled with love.

All thoughts of past and future
displaced through practice,
meditation, quietness, being
still; these daily moments of
calm, bring a realisation that
to be happy I must only
live now, in present moment,
for as each moment dies,
for me, a new one is born.

in present moment, for as each moment dies, for me, a new one is born....i love these lines...kind of echoes in my poems too...i do hope they still do when my brows are as furrowed as yours.

There is some metaphoric complexity, here, there are no tears for past events to fill up dry lakes of discontent, and my now happy smile, helps smooth the waters of my still much wrinkled face. And some enchanting conclusion; Flowers of hope have opened, blossoms of bliss bloomed, and seas of tranquillity and peace now fill my soul and my heart is filled with love. All thoughts of past and future visit me again as I read this beautiful poem'

Happiness is claimed, as it arrives in its fullest. Beautiful with a warm touch.
