I’d say I was happy, but you already know that …


laughing at life’s capers




I love to sprightly caper

leaping, lunging, lifting

swaying, sliding, skipping

dancing, dodging, dipping

prancing, pouncing, pivoting

whirling, swirling, revolving

constant movement


until it must be


energy released from captivity

hums, hoots, howls

in unabated joy

the soul’s flight from gravity

I want nothing pinning me down

how dare anyone try

enthralled delineates me

exuberance defines me

enthusiastic describes me

happiness finds me

it knows my name






I love this song … it says it all … in the very best way










to leap or skip about in a sprightly manner; prance; frisk; skip or dance about in a lively or playful way

an activity or escapade, typically one that is illicit or ridiculous
stunt, monkey business, escapade, prank, trick, mischief, foolery, tomfoolery, antics, hijinks, skylarking, lark, shenanigans

  1. I had to come back up to my present state of happiness after the downer yesterday. Had to let folks know I was OK. The Peanuts Gang always makes me smile … as well as the Chipmunks: Alvin, Simon, and Theodore. : ) Thanks for sharing, Mel. jan
