Thyme Flowers

Thyme flowers

She tells me,
happiness is larger
than life.
It’s like riding a
hot air balloon
and watching over
the world
beneath her feet.
It’s not.
Happiness is finding
little surprises,
like thyme flowers
in windy spring,
and honoring
their beauty
that otherwise
floats unnoticed.
Happiness is
saving broken
hearts when they
lose their wisdom,
and shrink in size,
knowing their
wild lavender
laughter need not
ever be “fixed.”
