WHEELS OF HAPPINESS

WHEELS OF HAPPINESS

When it moves, it’s a symbol of progression,
When it stops, it signifies control.
When it moves, it eliminates differences,
When it stops, it prepares you for the next challenge.
When it moves, there is satisfaction,
When it stops, there is hope.
When it moves, the roads are limitless,
When it stops, nature welcomes you.
When it moves, goals are achieved,
When it stops, there are opportunities ahead of you.
When it moves, stories are told,
When it stops, the stories draw inspiration.
When it moves, destinations change,
When it stops, the arrival is celebrated.
When it moves, the lungs exercise,
When it stops, you breathe fresh air.
When it moves, there is work in progress,
When it stops, livelihoods are met.
When it moves, relationships thrive,
When it stops, there is cultural exchange.
When it moves, there is a purpose,
When it stops, it adds meaning to life.
When it moves, there is joy,
When it stops, there is fulfillment.
Bicycles are the wheels of happiness.

WATER

WATER

Tiny petals are smiling as the the rain drop kisses the flowers,

Peacocks are dancing in mood as they feel the showers,

Waves are jumping with joy as falling rain greets the river,

Clouds are happy to run with cold breeze and shiver,

An aura of fragrance is lifted in air when mud and rain come together,

Birds are chirping tweet-tweet on a window; perhaps they have something to say forever.

It’s a beautiful feeling we all have found,

We thank you water for being around!
