the very brightness that we live our lives enveloped in
the light, the happiness, the daffodils growing in the park

and whether your rubber duck will float in the tub
to live under the security of the warm yellowness of the sun
to only see the blanket of light

a child under a blanket
that has a distorted yet
simple view of the world

and your curiosity that asks complex questions
will be satisfied only with simple answers
is the label
given to your desire for knowing
your unquenchable thirst for answers

why does a daffodil in the park remind you to live simply
why does a warm ray of sunlight remind you of pure happiness
because it is
