Joy

Poetry jam Prompt

Beyond the barriers of time,
Across foreign and domestic lands,
During times of melancholy and ecstasy,
lies a healing energy within us all,
that we call ... Joy.

It is easily accessed
by those with grateful, loving hearts
and is ours for the taking if we choose.

May we all choose each day
 to partake of its wonderful delight,
share it with others,
and remain in its presence.

Even when the days are sullen and long,
Even when the brutality of this world
offends our kind, peaceful spirits...
Let us all trust that Joy can still be found
and let our zest for life continue to remain unwavered.

... this is my wish for you and for all.
