Happiness is…

Posted on

happiness is looking into the innocent, cheerful, smiling eyes.

Sitting under a tree, its trunk keeping my back straight. Weather is very pleasant, cloudy, cool breeze, giving a hint of rain. I’m all alone, enjoying the surrounding, full of trees.

There comes a dog. Looks at my face. Perhaps for any sign of like or dislike. Founds agreeable. Comes close hesitantly. Sniffs my feet, then hurriedly licks my feet and runs away. Comes back again. This time more confident. Wags its tail, again licks my feet and goes away.

Suddenly comes a squirrel, stripped, cute, just 4 inches away from me. Looks at my eyes. I’m sitting very still. Not to frighten it away. We are both looking at each other. Maybe it thinks I,m a statue, perhaps. I can’t keep long without blinking. I blink. The spell is broken. It runs away.

This is the first time a squirrel has come so near. I feel sorry. I could not take its photograph but I’m happy, very happy.

It takes so little to be happy.

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World

Day 17- Poem

enchanting my day

by keeping grief at bay

but it comes back
again and again
to remind me
I’m also a part of your life
Don’t try to hide
or run away
face me
accept me
and I’ll become your friend
give you strength
to fight
to bear
to understand that
nothing ever stays long
grief or happiness
everything shall pass
It’ll also pass by
leaving
days of contentment
~ Indira

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Happiness is….

 

Happiness is……..

Cheerful mornings, smiling faces

Music, rain, children playing

Celebrating happiness with friends

Loving, sharing and caring

Finding solace in the nature

Sitting on the rocks 

Watching sunset or sunrise

Playing with the waves

Waves wash away unhappiness and assure

Nothing stays forever

This will also pass

Just don’t hold on to it

And forget it forever

Dhammapada ( attributed to Buddha )

It would be better if, instead of a thousands words,

There was only one, a word that brought peace.

It would be better if, instead of thousands poems,

There was only one , a poem that revealed true beauty.

It would be better if, instead of thousands songs,

There was only one, a song that spread Happiness.

Photographs aren’t accounts of scrutiny. The shutter is open for a fraction of a second.

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies.
Erich Fromm

What’s most refreshing than, fresh coconut water, morning walk on the sea beach or park, riding on the horse cart and  yummy appetizing breakfast.
