perfect happiness

hours spent with lines and colors,
decorating what was blank —
this is happiness, to me:
perfect happiness to me

hours spent in just creating,
loving every detail rich —
this is happiness, to me:
perfect happiness to me

not a world of domination
not a theme-united nation
not a spotlight where the others
just my freckled face would see

hours spent in careful toil
bringing color into life —
this is happiness, to me:
perfect happiness
to me

2 Thoughts to “perfect happiness

  1. We were gifted coloring books at the conference I attended a couple of weeks back. At first I meant to tuck it right into my bag, but I opened one up and started coloring … to discover it felt fantastic. I picked up a second book for Li’l D, who’s been coloring it with me and his dad in bursts since. It is such a sweet thing to share!
