...playing with words...
happiness the ever elusive ghost:)
Yes, this character seems to taunt, tease and elude me daily~
I loved this, especially the 8th line!! Brilliant :o)
"Happiness is never stopping to think if you are." ~Palmer SondrealloveNlightGabi
Oh yes, elusive it can be, as so can be the words to describe it. Well done.
Ah, but you are a poet and you can create your own reality for your words are powerful. Spoken words are gone with the wind while those written will stay with you to the end. Because you are a poet keep your head high. Here's one of my poems dedicated to poets.http://danroberson.wordpress.com/2010/11/30/small-simple-things-with-love/
Nicely done, Dani. Your blog is beautiful, too.
ha! you are on a roll...good stuff.
Life's a dream... happiness, maybe here, there, everywhere! Love how direct you are...
Oh that was too funny! And true!
Ah, we're on the same wavelength.
It's true: sometimes we're so busy pursuing happiness that we only recognise it once it's passed us.
Have to wonder if happiness is just a hologram we pursue because we like the sound of it. Good take on the prompt,Elizabeth
Indeed, wasting time pursuing something we apparently have no clue about, would be a farce. Love this poem, everything about it, including the fact that it made me giggle.
I agreee with you sometime fo sure...the pursuit of anything can turn out to be a farce. Happiness sometimes is especially elusive.
Yes, it does. But hope is eternal, isn't it?places
I got a good laugh out of this one Dani. So true.Pamela
Interesting take on this prompt and you are so right. Sometimes it (happiness) just gets misplaced after you haven't seen it in a while. Illusive but worth the hunt. This poem did make me laugh. :)
Thank you all for stopping by and commenting. I'm glad it made you laugh. It was intended to be lighthearted in highlighting that "chasing" happiness often causes us to miss it when it's right in front of us (or behind for that matter ;-)
And how true your statement in this poem is. Oftentimes, we are chasing after something that we haven't really visualized or isn't yet palpable in our minds and hearts yet.-Nicole
