Happy are We #poetry


piglet and winnie

we walked down the trail

of hopefuls and dreams

skipping to made-up tunes

holding balloons full of imaginings

the world floated below in color

our feet nudged the puffy sky

there is so much of wonder

let us open our eyes

take my hand as they higher lift 

magical and so much in store

as we rise above the hills

panoramic and so much more

never extinguish mind images

where  children laugh and play

melody bobs with the carousel

we love the ride every day

we walked down the trail

of hopefuls and dreams

skipping to made-up tunes

letting go balloons full of imaginings

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”

  1. Oh I love this. You not only ouched the child in me, but you made me even more grateful to have children in my life. Thank you so much for this. Oh, and I really like your drawings too.

  4. Amazing poem. Trip down memorary lane to carefree days. Balloons…though I was afraid of them as a kid, I always thought they looked cheery. These days what makes me happy is seeing my loved ones and a good meal 🙂

  5. I must have caught one of your balloons, because I was skipping down the trail as though at your side (and Winnie the Pooh and y pleasant, visually beautiful and Piglet too). The poem draws on our senses, lyrical metre is soooo pleasant. Visually, the poem is also stunning on the screen!

  7. I love the sense of escaping into an imaginative world, even while pondering life with my coffee…It is a little luxury, which returns a happiness, worth conserving!! Childlike, but calming…
