Take Joy

Joy can seep into a heart,
steady and slow; seeking a way in,
making soft all that was hard.

Joy can pierce a soul
like a beautiful painted arrow
hitting its mark.

Joy can do nothing but wait;
in the sun’s warm touch,
a Pine forest’s fresh scent,
the song of winged-one greeting the new day.

In every moment,
within your reach,
joy is waiting.
Take it.

Wallow in the shadow of the world’s gloom
or dance with the light of joy and waltz over it.
I hope you dance.
