Happiness Intent & Sunday Funny

I'm jumping back in with a poem using a form inspired by C. R. Ward called Triquint.

Happiness Intent

I think of all the days I have spent
Tears and time of commitment
Happiness intent
Wills are bent
Past

In youth there was no impediment
New adventures came and went
Happiness intent
Wills are bent
Fast

Mature eyes open, remain content
The climb hard, but worth ascent
Happiness intent
Wills are bent
Last

I wanted to get to a challenge, but I will just have to do the next one, like Aheila's drabble tomorrow. To keep me straight, here's what's coming up this week:
  • setting some summer goals for writing and querying
  • Dreaming of Disney
  • Catching up on everything with kids home from school, it never ends!
Here's the Sunday Funny =)
from "All This and Snoopy Too" by Charles M. Shultz, United Feature Syndicate, Inc. 1960

Love the cartoon. I was trying to calm my husband down yesterday by telling him that every generation feels pretty much the same way about growth, change and confusion. Life always swings back and forth. It started an argument. :-)
