Happy Poem

It’s hard to write a poem

when you’re happy–

when the world has turned just the way you want it,

when you’re needed,

when you’re loved,

and you’ve spent the entire evening in your favorite place

with your favorite person,

and better yet,

your birthday is tomorrow!

So in celebration,

I could hunker down

and write the deepest poem the world has ever known,

or I could say, simply,

that I

am happy.

No, ecstatic about life.

And rather than having me bring the words

into this new year,

I want to see

where the words

bring me.
