Cheerful: A Poem

I walked through the hills
That are taller than any will
The Italian air to fill
The wind made me shrink

My eyes somehow blinked
My heart seemed so big
I thought about the fig
That grew near the twigs

My eyebrows frowned
I watched the fields below
The sun shined like a crown
My mind seemed to allow

I look beyond to the sky
And smile so bright and wide
That my heart seem to fly
My happiness unable to hide

– Jan @jahnavigouri

  1. Loved the poem! I personally can write sad poems whenever I want. But ig, for most people, it’s only when they are feeling sad, they can write it. Or you know, many people write sad poems. It’s the happy poems no one does. Happy is difficult!

  2. Lovely poem and quote, my friend!
    To me, writing is seldom a reflection of mood. I can absolutely write happy poems when I’m sad and vice-versa, but I guess being authentic in the expression of our emotions can have a healing effect and act as a vent.

  3. ‘I walked through the hills
    That are taller than any will’
    I loved this line! Beautiful.
    And to answer your question: I quite often write happy poems, when I’m sad and sad poems when I’m happy. I suppose it’s a way of balancing things out.

  4. This poem is so hopeful
    Do you think you will be able to write sad poems when you are happy or do you think your feelings are reflected on your writing?
    I feel like I write best when I am writing what I feel but I can still write happy poems when I’m sad the only thing is that they seem fake then
