omens of happiness

they seem to portend
a link,
just as paper clips,
pulled from the cup;
one is removed
another follows,

a chain created.

Or with only one,
compressing a stack
of paper, each page
containing an old poem,
sandwiched between
alighting smiles,
and upside-down songs.

Today is the International Day of Happiness (declared by the UN)…

A link below from a blog, with various quotes about happiness.

ā€˜A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardships.ā€™ ā€“ Helen Keller

Have a frabjous day!
