Happiness is a foamy ocean
crashing on challenge’s shore.
Locked away behind mystery’s
maze of losses and mishaps.
I am a seeker trying to assemble
mystery’s blocks to unlock wisdom.
My heart hears trial and error’s
ticks and clicks on wisdom’s lock.
I have a hit and three misses
but happiness’ waves keep me going.
I can smell the coffee and hear
the candles flicker in dream’s bistro.
How I long to laze in peace’s rattan
hammock beneath closure’s coconuts.
Every sunrise I bring supplies and tools
to destiny’s cave and try wisdom’s lock.
One day I will wet my feet in
happiness’ waves and laze in peace.
