Happiness’ Shy Soul

soullet it in

sifting through casement cracks

contentment’s fairy dust settles

 

let it walk through your open door

and offer tea and a chair at the table

greet it with gentle curiosity

and give it room

 

let it pour in

like late afternoon sun

sprawling across the quilt

resting even as it brightens

 

invite happiness’ shy soul

into your life

give it safe harbour

and enjoy its sweet company
