Happiness

Happiness is warm sun on closed eyelids

your favorite sandwich

the tickle of a horse’s muzzle

the warmth of a dog’s body

a road trip across great nothings

a book you can’t stop reading

a character so evil you hate her from the very depths of your soul

a character you dig so much you jump and giggle and gasp.

Happiness is hot chocolate with marshmallows

a smile from a stranger

your favorite song on the radio

dancing for no reason to the music in your head

the smell of freshly baked bread

the smell of freshly washed clothes

the cold drizzle of a shower on a hot, sweating body

the sensation of air on naked skin

the realization of happiness being simply being.
