Looking for sounds of happiness
I reached the valley of flowers.
Sitting silently in a corner,
A butterfly, a bird, a bee
Humming, hovering, soaring…
Dissatisfied, returning to each flower
Hundreds of times,
Perching and flying…
Could you call this love?
I wondered what made the valley
So serene, so scenic!
Loving little flowers…so colorful
So deep, so bright and enchanting,
They mesmerized butterflies and bees
Human eyes too linger on them.
Rapt and awestruck, I watched
The valley of blissful ecstasy!
Happiness, love, serenity
The valley overflowed…
I know happiness lies in our heart
We just have to nurture it.
The blossoms of beauty and faith
A steady stream of goodness…
Brushes aside the thistles
Of everyday strife.
