A Thought

Luxuries and mansions 
Are subject to the money,
But a moment of bliss, 
Is superior and expensive
Than both.

    Money may buy mansions, son, but it can't buy happiness. Well done, dear. Love and blessings, "mom"

    It is said that happiness is 10% and unhappiness 90%, but that 10% outweights the 90%. The moment of bliss is surely superior, Charles

    WOW! good morning! I think, if U don't mind me saying I will stick 2 the expensive , luxury & the mansion,lol,, at least it won't hurt like the moment when one is lost in a bliss. Kidding ;-), I just woke up & this is the first poem, I'm reading,, By the way a moment in bliss is only perfect when someone tells you "I LOVE YOU" from the heart.. enjoyed your poem,,. and thanks for the *s.m.* when I'm fully awake i will return the smile... right now,,i need to make senseless comments,,always p.d.
