On a leafless branch
the bluebird of happiness
sits glaring at me.
Happiness I once was
he sang with a voice
of cool blue consternation.
But you did not notice
because your thoughts were focused
on decaying, dying leaves.
There is more to life than death,
and more to death than dead.
Every shadow comes from light
not the darkness in your head.
Happiness ……wake up! ~ms
