"... joy and sorrow are inseparable. . . together they come and when one sits alone with you . . . remember that the other is asleep upon your bed."
- Kahlil Gibran -
Oh... joy, joy, joy..... as gladness, is one of those sometimes ever so subtle feelings that come in moments of contemplation, quietude or while immersed in deep creativity - hovering, quietly in the subconscious - not even a deep breath can bring it forth...
How I miss joy on the surface of my skin...
as a soft tear causing its way down to my dry throat
as the passionate inquisitive hands of my lover
as the sensuous caressing ocean, enveloping my feet
How you visit me - unexpectedly
in a splash of paint
the words of a friend
better yet, the kindness of a total stranger - no more...
Joy...... fill my heart
