Meditation on My Happy Place

 

The world struts and saunters with its many wide wonders

  but nothing compares to my happy place

My thoughts still and slow and I let things go

  when I rest inside my happy place

My fancies run wild and I feel like a child

  when I play within my happy place

I build mind castles and deflate mighty hassles

  when I scheme inside my happy place

I feel sad and alone, so very alone,

  when I allow myself to in my happy place

I explore every notion and feel every emotion

  when I settle well into my happy place

Things feel more profound when no one’s around,

  and there I will heal in my happy place

I start simple and safe with ample self-grace

  whenever I return to my happy place

My bubble may grow, easy and slow,

  if I spend enough time in that happy place

Till one day I find, through presence of mind,

  the whole world’s become my happy place

happy placeHealingsafe place

◄ Endless Now

I push away the ending of the day ►

The difficulty for many is finding that happy place. It seems like you are able to do so. I am perhaps blessed in that I have more than one both physically metaphorically and spiritually.
I love the way your poem encourages others to seek that place.
Nice one

Hey Trix, would that also happen to be the Hand of God holding the leaf? Is it possible to hire it?

The reason I ask is Po hired it for a short time and I would also be interested. I like it's ethereal glow.

..."Things feel more profound when no one’s around,"

Resonating like a Tibetan Singing bowl trixtex.

I don't usually go for poems with a regular repeating line, but this one works for me...although I have to say the notion/emotion rhyme is well worn. Hope you don't mind this honesty. I do like the piece overall Trixtex.
