Happiness, Crocus in Snow

What is happiness but the falling away, however short, of suffering?
Would I hear the haunting, beautiful wind without 
the small spaces created by my earphones?
Would I know the joy of a child's laugh
if I didn't yearn for it to erupt from my own belly? 
The sight of the first yellow crocus
could not be so kind without the cruel snow
that tries to hide it.

    Thought provoking... This says to me the rough before the smooth and the things you yearn for are the most overlooked maybe under appreciated things sometimes. Lovely Thank you Karen Deeks
