“Happiness is a Side Effect”

Happiness is the side effect

of knowing what I believe

stored my rosemary memories

in castles fit for a queen.


I woke today

gave my pain body a hug

opened my inner curtains,

shed light on misery.


Lately, I find myself dancing and laughing with –

Mother Nature’s friend

Father Time’s lover

the universe’s soulmate –
