WELL of HAPPINESS by Jane Waller

This poem was written by Jane Waller (born 1924) and was provided by her son Blake Waller.

Mood is a blotter of the thoughts we hold.
God's Blessings -
Memories as sunrays through a frosted pane.
Frothy leafery sheltering a winding lane.

Apple blossoms - a shimmering smile.
Fragrant winds wafting -
Swishy tailed squirrels put birds to flight.
A rising sun closing out the night.

The dance of golden wheat ere shocked.
Angel wings fluttering -
Leonardo Da Vinci, Chopin, Thoreau.
A bottle's secreted message
on the river's flow.

A grandchild's smile
of recognized genes.
Pussy willow softness -
blue skies, pink roses,
yellow buttercups.
Wee cool dew drops
for the elves to sup.

The last bright glow
of applewood embers.
Cozy warmth -
One love, true friends,
a family gathered,
embracing arms
of a life well weathered.
