a doubt of happiness

Poem #27 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

when you see a person
who is happy
are you not led to think
in terms of the positive
as though happiness
is itself a presence

happiness may actually be a negative
marked by an absence
of questions

isn’t it possible
that the positive side of happiness
is over-rated
while the joyous wonder
of freedom from doubt
lacks the recognition
