12 December 2016


 Joy rippled through me,
 a still lake hit by pebbles,
 creating layers of mirth.
 Hope flamed in me
 like a voracious bonfire
 to mark new beginnings.
 Happiness sang me a sweet song
 In tune with the single lark on my porch seat-
 Melodious and loud.

Sunshine filtered through my window,
and illuminated my soul,
I opened my front door to
frosty gale
and smiled joyously
at the morning dreary and pale.

The storm clouds gathered above
pass by without a noise,
Unfazed, with sure strides
I walk out the door with my dear friend Joy.
