16: Happiness is…

A poem for International Day of Happiness

Happiness is

By Dominique Mitchell.


I chew on a soft piece of warm buttered bread.


His hand slips into mine,

we exchange a smile,

the bus drives by.


I watch the sun rise.


Six of us sit around a camp fire.

The tents whimper under the bellowing winds,

we chat and laugh and ignore their cries.


I put pen to paper and explore another’s life.
