The Chinese character for happiness appears
to be twin symbols joined to make one
two pretty stacks of circles and lines
the longest of which touch the other’s
like arms encircling each other’s waists.
Balance, harmony, connectedness 
together creating happiness. 
And this makes perfect sense to me
for all I can know about such things
inside my Irish English German Swiss 
(not Chinese) brain.
