Happiness

The  dancing  swan on the  lake Splashing  water  fascinates  me Reflection  showing  equal  and Opposite  reaction also attracts  me I  see  my  own  image  as  a  butterfly, Flitting  around  from  flower  to  flower Also as  peacock  with  its  open  plumes Prancing  gloriously  in  rain  shower The  laughter  that’s  manifest With  […]
