The Moments of Happiness

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

“The moments of happiness...”
You must remember this
As the light becomes less
Memories are a true bliss
Flowers that a day did cast
Treasures belonging to your heart
From time’s gone past
And their dissimilarity apart

If you miss their meaning
You shall fail to remember
Yellow-brown’s autumn streaming
That comes with September
And everything that’s right
That approaches or comes near
Each in its possessing light
Like a rhyme from nowhere!

The moments that go by
Set all their unique disparity
Like the morning waking sky
That’s born from chance and clarity
If you miss their meaning
You shall fail to bear in mind
The way of each true dreaming
That your day has left behind

Great characters! And, ironically, not one of them looks Asian.
