happiness

soft little feather
escapes the thick foliage
dances thru the sieved light
soft strands tickling
.
slowly floats
down the forgotten well
savoring the silence
slicing thick air
.
touching the cold
unseen ripples
spreading thru the deep pool
a bit of spray
.
jumps up
drenching the musty walls
refreshing dampness
sweet smell swells
.
if
no one’s seen this
heard this
felt this
.
did it happen
ever
?

"if a tree fell in the woods and no one was around to witness it, would it make a sound?"

all that happened, did not.

Perception, that's what it is.
What one hears & sees...happened.
What one does not hear & see...it never happened!

Shoon....things happen or may not happen....but we can only say it happened when we see/hear/feel... else, we don't! Hope you know where I'm coming from!
