“Why are you staring?”

You have good peripheral vision
You’re also lying by omission
I see happiness bubbling over,
spilling out over the sides
steadily rising
intruding on other territories
crossing over lines
as water at high tide
Joy is radiating from you
in the sweet colours of the honeydew
pale yellow and luminescent green
soft and smooth β€” the sheen of sateen
It’s almost indecent
for you to display such…iridescence

What have you got to say for yourself?

Nothing at all,
happiness doesn’t need to be told
It can’t help but be seen
yet it is quiet and serene
Happiness simply is
longed-for unadulterated peace
