How I Would Paint Happiness 

by Lisel Mueller

Something sudden, a windfall,
a meteor shower. No -
a flowering tree releasing
all its blossoms at once,
and the one standing beneath it
unexpectedly robed in bloom,
transformed into a stranger
too beautiful to touch.







Or how about the happiness of falling leaves? Which I tried to capture, and failed at, but failed happily.....

  1. One of the most incredible things in this world is to watch leaves falling off trees. It can instantly make you happy. Love the poem, beautiful!
