any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
There is wisdom in this. Happiness and disappointment have little to do with the event as much as how we view it in our hearts. It is a feeling, and we can choose this to an extent. Though I do have those things that make me happy, like your running.
This is such a magnificent poem..!! :DWith ink of lightAnd ever ready to writeThe story of a life.Loved these lines :D thought it was a brilliant way to end the poem :DLots of loveSanaa
Only the wise can discover the happiness inside, A message beautifully delivered! :)
What a journey and awakening...most things lie within us..and we discover we can write and share them...that's a joy
Bless you for your peen and all it brings to me! Linking happiness with outcomes has also ended for me, though I cannot pinpoint when. I like the image of cracking open like an egg, only better. It's another lease on life.
Beautiful! Indeed, happiness is always in the heart ..we have to crack the shell to discover it.... :-)
Fascinating piece, Sumana! Oh, how I loved the 'ink of light'...beautiful! Inspiring...
definitely life is yin and yang, yet i think back to a quote i read recently which said one is fully responsible for one's happiness; so write, write write my dear sister poetthanks for dropping in to read minemuch love...
Sumana, this is beautiful - just beautiful. One of my two favorites of yours in recent weeks. Smiles. I like that happiness always lies hidden in the heart...sometimes it takes us almost a lifetime to realize this. So good as well to write the story of a life. We can do this with poetry, I think! Smiles.
Exceedingly beautiful, and wise. I resonate so deeply with your words.
This is a beautiful poem with several lovely images--the ink of light is one of my favorites.
You've described your personal evolution here. So fun to read and appreciate.
Love love LOVE this: "Happiness is the sharp, pointedNib of a penAnd is always filledWith ink of light"
I couldn't agree more. That is just beautiful and fitting.
This particular portion was my favorite as well :-) Just beautiful.
Beautifully penned Sumana. I particularly liked the that happiness always lay hidden the heart. Also, I will never look at the coins the same way again.
Yes happiness comes from within....some are blessed with it ,others must learn !
Great image of happiness cracking open its shell.. Yes, I agree happiness comes from the inside!
Very philosophically layered into many wonderful levels. Great show of language skills Sumana!Hank
Oh, what a lovely discovery — I could feel it as you wrote. (Or so it seemed; I was actually feeling it as I read, of course. *Smile* )
How beautiful this poem is. For all the joy we have in our lives it is often much later that we realize how wonderful even small events were that made us happy.
Wish you loads of happiness!!
We can choose which we want...for even in dissapointment and loss, wait, happiness is on the way....
This poem is splendid. How beautifully you describe the truth of happiness, of life, of inner discovery. I love this poem Sumana.
Oh I felt like I was on a treasure hunt Sumana. Truly happiness lies at the end of the pen.
That happiness always lay hiddenIn the heartI love this wisdom!
Sumana,I do believe that happiness is stored in our hearts and that there is always more than we might require in our lifetime. Therefore, it should be easy to give and to find happiness, sometimes in the oddest of places. I liked the two-faced coin of emotions; so true. Of course Sumana, ink flows with a goodness which repays us, when we read our words!Eileen
Beautiful, beautiful write!
Wonderful - For me: some of your very best work, Sumana!
A positive and uplifting poem.
The last stanza is a sticky one for me....the wisdom of life laid in those six lines.....Awesome will be an understatement.
A lovely poem, Sumana. We make our happiness and we have to keep disappointment at bay by perhaps finding a coin with happiness on both sides...Loved the last six lines!
Very well said ... happiness lies deep within us :-)
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
