Time to write a happy poem

I really wanted to write a happy, light poem tonight. Maybe I did.

Writing a light poem
can be harder
than writing
an emotional tirade.
Why is it that
Happiness and humor
are harder to communicate
than sadness and bitter thoughts?
I suppose there could be a joke
in there
But looking for it
might take more effort
than a lightweight poem
Don't be heavy,
think light
poetry light
happy light.
Leave the darkness out
of the creative process
Deep breath.
Feels good.
Is that a smile?
Mission accomplished.
