Happiness and Miracles


We talk about happiness

The way we do miracles,

The pots of gold at the

end of the rainbow.

Do you remember

your first rainbow?

I had just come home

from seeing E.T.

and was already feeling


and there it was,

right outside my

bedroom window,

all the hues of life.

I was already looking

at the pot of gold,

and couldn’t imagine

anything more magical

than indigo,

and I can’t imagine

anything happier

than discovering

what is already

here. – TS
