A bottle of happiness

Happiness hovers and catches your breath

Thoughts gush and rush forth

Preserve this feeling:

Bottle it!

And then

Bring it out again

To help face the darker days

That have been before and will come again!

Glad I discovered your work today Alison. Write On!

Thanks Ian :-)

Maxine I am glad you found my work also - Poetry slams sound like an interesting experience.

Now - to say what I normally do not say here - what is this about. I just found out that 2 of my poems were accepted for publication. This means a lot to me and in my happiness I tweeted a poem to express that joy. Looking at the tweet later I thought - hey this has potential and thus "a bottle of happiness" was born...

Thanks Sue for helping me fine tune this poem and Graeme for finding the right word.

I word Preserve replaced Capture - and brings to mind preserving the moment to be enjoyed at at future point in time :-)
