Poem for a Korean magazine on the subject of happiness (they accepted it but I think they went bust!)

Happiness is

When the sites of rejection are replaced
with the spaces of anticipation
and the realisation prevails that the next instant
does not have to be accounted for

When crossing borders becomes the necessity
and not the objective
and the bodies encountered are founded
rather than misplaced and elapsed

When uttered truths are recognized
and registered in the eye which reflects
and are not discarded
by the lips which urge new declarations

When every horizon is denounced
as a uniformed goal and we focus on
embodying the silhouettes
which adjoin and highlight the vista, our prospect

Oh gosh! That's not good if they went out of business. Great poem though.

Anyway, you have an award here. :)
