Happiness is... (a poem)
seeing a camel thorn tree silhouetted
against a misty sky wedded
to creatures known
watching a fighting fit tortoise,
unaware of justice and injustice,
crossing the road bravely
watching a hadeda ibis -
an ex-libris of sadness in extremis -
taking off for a destiny
not subjected to scrutiny.
making choices not knowing the end
beyond the first bend –
Happiness is true
just being with you.
