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.

Angeline Haen was raised on a small dairy farm in Sobieski, Wisconsin, where the love of the earth and all things of nature collected in her heart. She and her husband, Andy, steward a forty-five acre hobby farm and tend to the needs of two teenagers, four beehives, a 110 pound yellow lab named Wally, two and a half horses, flower beds, berry patches and gardens. Her first book, Sweet Wisdoms, was released by Shanti Arts Publishing in February 2017. In 2015 two of her poems were published in the Wicwas publication entitled Safe To Chew. When she’s not writing, you can find her sharing some lov'n from her oven, driving a school bus or watching grass grow.
