Happiness Is

Happiness is a redwood tree
Reaching to the skies.
Happiness is a snowy peak
So bright it hurts my eyes.
Happiness is a babbling brook
That draws my soul down in it
And fills me up with inner peace
For eternity, or a minute.

Happiness is a desert bloom
Struggling from the sand.
Happiness is a tiny squirrel
Who lives inside the land.
Happiness is a bird raising her chicks
In a Saguaro.
Happiness is living for today,
Not yesterday or tomorrow.
