Happiness Found Me

Happiness knocked on 

My mind and heart

In different ways today. 

In the experience

Of having a friend bend

Over my lawnmower,

Adjusting, fiddling, tweaking

And fixing the beast.

In the feeling 

That I’m learning

About myself and 

Know that the little

Looks my partner gives,

The thoughtful

Comments he makes,

(“It tastes good, thank you.”)

And the caresses 

Which abound 

With my partner

Give me happiness

That I’ve found love.

And I find happiness

in the knowledge

That I found

The rightful owner

Of the abandoned

Sonoma on my property.

Everyday I find reasons

To be happy in

Experiences, self-education,

And giving back.
