An excuse to be happy

I have been smiling for no reason today,
I don’t need an excuse to be happy today,
For once life has been so different today,
I have been smiling for no reason today.
Amidst dirty droplets of life, its been a rainbow today,
All I Wish for, are more days, just like today,
I don’t need an excuse to be happy today,
I have been smiling for no reason today,


Its been a long time since I participated in Totally optional prompts. Prompt today over their is triolet, its a kind of poetry which follows the rhyme patters ABaAabBA, its an eight line poetry where 1,4,7 lines are same, and also 2,6 are same. Thought I should give a try. You can read more about triolet here
