Chasing Joy

Are you waiting for Saturday,
For a beautiful lazy morning sleep?
Or saving up a long trip,
To share some laughter with your peeps?

Ah! And there is this promotion,
You’ve pining for so long.
And if you get that raise,
You’ll be the happiest person in earth. 

But oh well, this is a shocking news!
When did happiness become a competition?
When did happiness come at a price?
How did happiness become rare?

So, take a chill pill dear,
And enjoy life as it goes.
Cause happiness comes from within,
And finding joy in little things.

The beautiful summer breeze,
As you drive to your office,
Let it be your ‘me-time’
Capture your happy vibes. 

30 seconds of phone call
To your long forgotten friend,
Let it turn your frown upside down,
You don’t need a trip to Moscow.

Jolly vibes can be found every where,
Staying there, waiting for you.
You don’t need to go chasing for it,
You just need to open your eyes. 

For NaPoWriMo Day 18, an ode to life’s small pleasures

    It’s…. Really good! Well done Wildheart, you’ve presented a masterpiece once again!
    My favourite line: ‘Jolly vibes can be found every where,
    Staying there, waiting for you.
    You don’t need to go chasing for it,
    You just need to open your eyes.’
    Just beautiful 💖 💖 💖

    Thanks for your dedication to your readers. You take the time to connect with so many people around the world with your ideas, poetry and positive energy. Saturday here has turned out sunny and fresh. People outside are greeting one another with smiles and laughter, even though it is a time of upheaval for us all, isn’t it? Anyway, your writing here was a good omen. Keep serving up that spice and magic.
