Art is a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself -- Willa Sibert Cather

>> 26 October 2009

Happiness is a concept so elusive
that many a search for it is inconclusive.

Happy moments can show their faces
in a subtle instant, in many places.

Those who recognize the fleeting seconds
notice they happen more often than one reckons.

Those who are able to add them all up
little by little fill their happiness cup.

Ending the day with a list of gratitude
will slowly but surely change your attitude.

Thanks to
for prompting this poem on the theme of Elusive.

@ Tumblewords: I am glad you liked it.

@ Sandy Carlson: we all need this reminder, daily :-)

@ Shraddha: thank you.

@ Julie Eger: Cute and quirky and too the point - which is my kind of thing. Thanks.

@ Patois: Oh yes it is. And by filling out a page of a few things we're grateful for every evening does remind us of all the wonderful things we have in life to be happy about.

Happiness can indeed be elusive. It comes in many forms, and sometimes, when you least expect it.
