A Pebble in Stillness

Looking for a gold brick
Under the bed, in the closet
But I know I know for sure
I have no gold anywhere.

I keep looking
For happiness everywhere
Glimpses I get as love
As beauty as serenity.

Just have to look harder
Smarter deeper and wider
Within and without
I know I know its there.

Happy I am when in love
Happy I am in beauty
In kindness and in peace
In deep sleep when I is absent.

Objects come and go
But their subtle sensation
Lingers me happy as me.
I know I know its there.

I confuse what body wants
As my only desire
Not for what it is
A  pebble in stillness.
