Enjoying nature

Enjoying forests, birds and the breeze

Enjoying music, reading, traveling

Enjoying looking, listening, feeling, touching –

I realize -

More than this joyful spread before me

More joyous is this gift, so special,

To find joy, to discover beauty

In matters all, piddling and profound.

Deprived, denied of everything

Of riches, of senses

Even in darkness I will remember

The light, oh life, you shed on me.

I will hope and wait

With the glow of happy memories

Warming, keeping me alive.

  1. Understood fully and also I feel
    “Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.”

  2. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
