Happy Poems

No poet 
Writes happy poems
For long

The poem of spring always finishes
With the wilting decay 
Of petals crushed under frost

The poem of the sun always ceases
With the blinding bright glare
Of stark stadium lights

Because the sunlight skims off glassy eyes
And blue sparkling streams don’t have the depth
Of dark lakes or dark nights

Because you see more soul
In skin-soaking, driving showers of tears and eerie
Silence - than in loud thoughtless strumming sing-songs

    So true! It makes one wonder why it is so hard to express joy, doesn't it? Very thought-provoking poem.
