Happiness in Hues

A canvas blank, pure potential lies,
With every shade, a joy can rise,
Swirls of bliss in blue and green,
Painting scenes of serene unseen.


Gentle strokes of ochre glow,
Warmth of smiles in golden flow,
A touch of crimson, laughter's hue,
A rainbow splashed on morning dew.


Midst shadows, a silver line we weave,
In darker times, we must believe,
For happiness in tints so bright,
Is not without its darker night.


Each hue emerges from the heart,
The painter's pause, a quiet art,
Blending sorrow with the light,
Balancing day against the night.


In life's grand portrait, let it show,
No single color can happiness owe,
Together, they dance, blend, and fuse,
In every spectrum, happiness hues.


Cascade of Joy

Like a stream, light trickling down,
Where laughter bubbles, easing frown,
A gentle cadence in its flow,
The melody of joy we come to know.


Over rocks of worry, it leaps with grace,
In sunlit droplets, hope we can trace,
A brook of bliss, through valleys wide,
An endless dance at happiness' side.


Sometimes a torrent, wild and loud,
In roaring echoes, it breaks the shroud,
Sweeping away the weighted past,
In heavy currents, sorrow won’t last.


Then quiet pools of peace so still,
Reflecting skies, an azure thrill,
Mirrored moments of serene rest,
Capture the calm that serves us best.


This waterfall of pure delight,
Shapes the soul in gentle light,
Wherever life’s waters may deploy,
Let them crash and swirl, in cascade of joy.


Whispers of Happiness

Whispers travel through the air,
Brushing cheeks like breaths of prayer,
Words unspoken, yet understood,
Happiness shared, as it should.


Secret grins between two souls,
The silent laugh that softly rolls,
A look exchanged, no need to speak,
In knowing glances, joy they wreak.


Rustling leaves in trees so high,
Echo the calm of the sky,
Each flutter a tale of ease,
A tender, rustling hymn of peace.


The dance of light on morning waves,
Harbor whispers that the heart saves,
Glistening hints of days anew,
In silence, happiness accrues.


In tender murmurs, let it be,
This quiet joy sets us free,
In whispers shared, in tender touch,
In silent moments, it says so much.


A Burst of Joy

Like fireworks in the velvet night,
Joy erupts in colors bright,
Racing skyward, loud and clear,
In vibrant shouts, happiness is here.


Each sparkle a laughter in the dark,
Illuminating parks and hearts,
A burst of red, a streak of gold,
A story of delight, boldly told.


It fades as quickly as it flared,
In the afterglow, we've shared,
The memory of that sudden light,
A moment's joy that hugged us tight.


But even when the sparks have died,
Inside our chests, they still reside,
The echoes of those bright displays,
Keep the sense of wonder ablaze.


So cherish each explosive cheer,
Hold to joy when it appears,
For in the dazzle of its flight,
Lives a burst of pure delight.


Reaping Happiness

In the fields of time, happiness grows,
Between moments, a gentle wind blows,
We tend the crops with careful thoughts,
Reaping smiles that sun has brought.


Day by day, we sow the seeds,
With kind acts and selfless deeds,
Nurturing with patience true,
Until it blooms amidst the dew.


A rich harvest from tender care,
Bounty of joy in the open air,
Fruits of peace, ripe and sweet,
In each encounter, that we meet.


When the harvest comes at length,
In shared grins we find our strength,
Gathered in a common bind,
The yield of love that we've designed.


Let's be farmers in this quest,
Cultivating joy as our lifelong quest,
For in each soul, it can grow,
A harvest of happiness, we can bestow.


Mirthful Mosaic

A tile of laughter, a shard of smile,
Joined together, style upon style,
A mirthful mosaic, life's art,
Collected pieces of the happy heart.


Each fragment tells a tale of cheer,
Of golden moments held so dear,
Glassy memories inlaid with care,
Reflecting the joy we've come to bear.


Patterned pathways of vibrant glee,
The colors of shared history,
Within the grout of time they lay,
Creating scenes of a joyous ballet.


The image formed, not always clear,
Sometimes muddled by a tear,
Yet through the kaleidoscope we find,
The harmonious dance of a joyous mind.


Look upon this joyful spread,
A life mosaic, happiness threading through its bed,
Each piece a part, both large and wee,
Together forming ecstasy.


Glee on a Breeze

Glee rides upon a gentle breeze,
Weaving through the willow trees,
Skimming ponds, over fields it roves,
Carrying laughter in its troves.


With zephyrs that cajole and tease,
Tickling leaves, a whispered please,
Joy alights on outstretched hands,
In its presence, sorrow disbands.


The wind, a lively minstrel's song,
Carries happiness all day long,
It twirls around, a jolly dance,
Through every leafy, swaying expanse.


Beneath the sky's resplendent dome,
Glee finds every heart a home,
Against the cheek, a soft caress,
With tender touch, it's here to bless.


So let us open wide our doors,
To that which floats in from the shores,
For on each breeze, if we believe,
Is joy's embrace, ready to receive.


Summit of Delight

Upon the summit of delight,
Beneath the sun so warm and bright,
We stand above the clouded fray,
Where heart's cheer can on display.


The climb was steep, the rocks were sheer,
Yet the peak of joy we drew near,
With every ledge and every crag,
We found new zests, reasons to brag.


From this height, the world seems small,
Troubles insignificant, complaints all stall,
A perspective gained from pure elation,
The mountain’s gift, life’s elevation.


Surrounded by the ethereal sky,
Where eagles of contentment fly,
The air is crisp, the view surreal,
On this summit, happiness we feel.


Descend we must, to vales below,
But within us, this joy will grow,
For once attained, this peak's delight,
Remains in hearts, forever bright.


Lanterns of Glee

In the night, lanterns float high,
Glowing orbs against the blackened sky,
Each a wish, a dream set free,
Carrying hopes of what will be.


Letting go of woven threads,
Releasing joy where fear treads,
Upward drifts this glowing bloom,
Through the quiet evening's gloom.


Light-hearted spirits, tender flame,
A universe of joy, we claim,
In flames that flicker, dance, and play,
We find a brightness to lead the way.


Together, these lanterns tell a tale,
Of unity when all else may fail,
In their soft light, we comprehend,
Happiness shared is the gentlest friend.


As they ascend into the night,
May we too hold that delight,
For like these lanterns, we must see,
We're meant to rise, in glee, be free.


Sweet Symphony of Mirth

Life's orchestra begins to play,
A symphony of mirth, it sways,
In every note, a laugh etched deep,
In harmony, our joys we keep.


A melody soars, violins sing,
High above, where happiness clings,
A cello's hum, the baseline of zest,
In this concert, we find our rest.


Brass trumpets joy with exuberance,
In music, find life’s sweet affluence,
The flute's soft trill, a sip of cheer,
Rhythms that draw the spirit near.


Percussion beats a lively heart,
Each tap and bang, an artful start,
Timpani echoes, contentment's roll,
In every beat, they speak to the soul.


As the final notes gently fade,
In memory, they're sweetly laid,
Let this be the anthem, brightly spun,
A sweet symphony of mirth, played by everyone.
