Title: The Nature Of Joy
Rating: pg 17
I believe the nature of joy
Has little to do with an absence of sorrow,
Or even with the presence of some ‘wonderful event’.
My encounters with true joy
Have always resulted from simple things:
Drinking coffee to the sound of birdsong;
Sunshine dancing on ice-covered branches;
Clean air filling my lungs;
Knowing my words are reaching a friend.
