What is joy?


Could it be the sunbeam

that breaks through

the clouds on a cold, grey day?

the one pure, sweet note,

in a sad song,

that awakens the heart to a new possibility?

could it be

a smile from a stranger,

a shared glance that triggers

a deeper knowing?

a spring flower,

pushing through the snow,

a bright autumn leaf,

twirling in the wind….


Perhaps joy comes in

a thousand ways,

beckoning us to freedom,

to join the eternal dance…
