What makes you happy?

My Year 11 class recently has been sharing music that has meaning to them. They have played songs that noted the world’s difficulties. While affirming that, I asked them to take time outside on a sunny Melbourne day and call to mind what makes them happy


Laughing young people

Under an azure sky

Savouring their release from ‘captivity’


We are filled with the sights and smells of spring.

Despite the wind

A camaraderie

Is shared

Goodness flows

Happiness is glimpsed


May we keep our focus

On the good

Remembering that joy

Is the infallible sign of

The presence of God
