Little Things
Happiness is when you devour grandma's cookies,
Is when you get a hug from your best friend,
Is when you saw someone help another person,
Is when you get a whiff of homemade baked goods,
Is when you overhear laughter,
Happiness can be anything you want it to be.

1. My theme is that happiness can be anything you want it to be. And the technique
I used was figurative language quick write. It helps support the theme because Im
explaining things that are real to explain happiness.
2. That he like devoted his whole life in teaching and writing poetry. I didnt know
that much went into it. I didnt use any techniques that the author of my poem used in my
poem. My poem was about happiness and other things and this poem is about
happiness.
3. I dont usually write poetry. But the message I wanted to get across was that
happiness can be anything you want it to be and the way I wrote it was that I was telling
things of the 5 senses that makes me happy.
