What is “Bliss”?

What is “Bliss”? By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37 on Twitter)

The poet observes
Others meander
And make the motions
Of life
To deep thought
I sometimes envy
Their oblivious nature
Happy in the moment
But then write
Knowing they don’t
And I am happy I can.

I sometimes get depressed thinking about the state of the world, the anger, the hate, the wars. And like others, see people going about their days, doing what humans do, and many times observe happiness and laughing and joy in mundane things, and envy their being in the moment. But how many people take the time write about their pain in poetry, the beauty they observe in nature in their poetry? I may not always get lost in the moment, but I am at least glad that I can write poetry.
