Written for Poets United.
Tried. Can’t. So for that, I thank you today!!!
Bum fizzle. It worked on me. In fact your whole poem tickled me–the good kind inside tickle–not the torture-the-children kind of tickle I had to grin and bear. I forgot all about the laws of gravity. Thank you for contributing to this week’s happiness!
I love the idea of happiness tip-toeing up to you and saying boo. Happiness CAN sometimes pleasantly surprise a person when they aren’t looking! The examples you gave made me smile!
This is spooky because earlier today I was cleaning house, depressed and cynical, saying, “there is no happy place”. And I just got to my blog job–and here you are, full of happy place–Remarkable, no?!!
This makes me happy. 🙂
PS: I loathe cleaning. I agree, “there is no cleaning happy place.”
And you know what? I’m determined to write a happy poem tonight….
“Cleaning, done properly, can kill you.”
Yay! Leave me a link, here. 🙂
This is such a joyful poem 😀 I do love periwinkle 🙂
Your poem makes me so happy….love all the ways it made me smile…..especially “it’ll just tip-toe right up and say boo”. And your perfect closing – no one can read that line without smiling.
very observant. liked the details of each line. i want to live in a world that you have described
I think it must be very bad if your bum fuzzles.
I would love to see a dude named Happy skipping down the road. Especially in a Purr Suit.
I like how you got “fool on” in there with that line break. And that “toe right up” had me searching for who had died. The bad guy/day, I hope.
LOL what a happy fun poem
Thanks for dropping by to read mine
This reminds me of the Pharrell “Happy” song. And how true – happiness is so simple – nobody argues about happiness, do they? Well, I’m sure we could find some argument about it somewhere! But this poem would sure refute it!
Bumfuzzle and periwinkle – I am smiling
I love the fun words you interjected into this poem in various spots. Really great 🙂
Loved that built-in “wink” in the “winkle”. Smiles. Fantastic piece,..!!
Haha – you’ve won that dare! Love how the poem fizzles up like a firecracker – just like the sudden happiness it describes. Great words, great form, great poem 🙂
thanks for the lovely, lovely happy shots…and you’re so right about being willing to let it come to us…so much depends on us….
Oh, I think I must start skipping along the road instead of just walking! 🙂
bumfuzzle without muzzle
befuddled aren’t rattled
muddled but surreal
and one is saddled
It’s a big juggle
(Try saying with eyes closed!)
Yes, saying funny words makes me smile. Love your poem. So true there are usually lots of little things in the day that can tickle us, if we notice and allow.
OH MY WORD!! De! THIS is medicine!!! Thank you…I especially love the periwinkle part! ♥
You have got the gift of sharing and sending happiness, right across the world!! Wink was a clever little word:) There are those moments when a dark mood is easily melted by a wry smile, seeking to cheer…Super litttle poem; uplifting.
Well it’s not hard to laugh when saying “bumfuzzle” as it immediately brings back childish memories of the first naughty words that we say.
Yep smiled…and skipping is good too…even in the privacy of your own home 😉
I love it, Skipping is definitely the work of a happy person.
Yes, De, we have to actively open ourselves up for happiness to find us and enter us. It is a state of mind after all… Enjoyed reading this.
