HAPPINESS 101

HAPPINESS 101


squishing mud between my toes
icky fingers in my nose
frogs harrumphing in my pocket
worms and bugs and itchy things
lumps and bumps the scratching brings
bugs and snakes and critters all
long and short fat and tall
funky muck from willow pond
exploding tops of willow fronds
feathers floating everywhere
willow angels in my hair
sticker burrs and sapling glue
painted cheeks of berry blue
munching on crab apple snacks
following a bunny’s tracks
humming drone of dragonfly’s
butterfly’s of any size
lying flat in lush green grass
shaping clouds floating  past
a summer day, a dog, and me
