"Happiness is an Option"
by G.L. Pettigrew
There will be moments
When the shrieking banshee storms
the fierce beasts are at bay
the face of night is no longer black as perdition
but freckled with soft stars, light by the moon's glowing beauty mark
And all will be peace. It will be sweetness.
Without warning you will have joy
a happy stillness
And this--this is permitted
This is a good thing.
