Haiku poetry
may not rhyme, but still it is
not just simple prose!
Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

I can't help but think
Al Gore's private jet fumes in-
crease global warming.

ain't beneficial.

It seems we can now
turn from Haiku poetry
to Allegories!
Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

At this time of year,
the concern is allergies-
not allegories.

Allegories mixed
with these allergies, et Al,
might be quite Gory!

"To Love" is to dance.
To and fro, relationship's steps
decide where you go.

I think "To and Fro"

is more likely "Ebb and Flow".

Love/Hate...the fine line.

The lines dividing
love and hate are finely drawn,
yet easily bleed.
Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

infinitely sharp,
the shards of a broken heart;
try not to disturb.

No amount of 'glue'
can perfectly mend a heart-
It's forever scarred.

Better to have a
heart that is broken, than to
have a heartless soul.

Chose pain over numb?
Select tears over no cares?
Sadness or nothing?

Numb and uncaring?
An empty void for a soul?
The thought causes tears!
Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

How to define "soul"?
Is it having a conscience?
Aretha's music?

Defining what's soul?
Only when one feels it, can
one know its' meaning
Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.
