WELL of HAPPINESS by Jane WallerThis 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.
