Just around the corner

Each dawn I embark upon this journey.
The journey of my eternal hunt for happiness.

Today it took me for a walk
pounds i thought i would shed,
stress i thought that would melt
with the distance that i traverse on the path.

Spurts of speed and brisk
spaced with some slow down
is what the guideline said.

we humans follow guidelines to the tee, don’t we?

breathe in, breathe out
the final lap of the walk.

Today with each breathe i savoured something more than clean air.
the giggle of a street urchin
the smile of a mother
the laughter of the Gen Old
the rustle of the leaves
the dew on the grass
the whiff from the flowers.

Today, did the journey  get over even before it started?
Did I just end my hunt today ?

I suppose, it usually waits for me each day
Just around the corner!
