HAPPY FACE



I see the emoji
Of a happy face
My finger moves
To click
It almost reaches there
I pull it back
Hearing my soul say
Happiness does not have a face
Joy has has no home
And delight, no form
Nor is there a shape
Of peace and gratitude.
These are but conditions
Of souls of the many worlds,
Animate and inanimate,
Nodding to each other.
