The Pursuit

July 6, 2014

You can’t fill up on happy
By drinking twenty beers
Or eating cotton candy
Till it comes out your ears

Happy don’t yield dividends
When you pursue it as an end
Happy is the residue
Of all the worthwhile things we do

The need to know that nibbles
And asks us who we are
Won’t be sated by garages
With fifty-seven cars

Happy don’t yield dividends
When you pursue it as an end
Happy is the residue
Of all the worthwhile things we do

Find yourself a project
And plug, plug, plug away
Make a little progress
And show up every day

Happy don’t yield dividends
When you pursue it as an end
Happy is the residue
Of all the worthwhile things we do

Happy-Spangled Day

May 1, 2014

Cute happy boy in red baseball cap

Fresh and springy
Sunny day
Flowers pushing
Up to say
“Live your
Happy-spangled day
And mosey on
Your special way”

Burst it out
And don’t be coy
Smell the colors
Live the joy
Be a playful
Bouncy boy
The universe
Will be your toy
