Joy Poetry

Joy Poetry


If thoughts could paint pictures that words dare not speak,
And daydreams built castles of that which we seek,

Then artists and architects all would we be,
Our hearts would be open, our minds would be free.

I'd build a castle as daydreams unfold,
Revealing the feelings I secretly hold.

I'd paint a picture of words left unsaid,
And feelings of closeness to which they have led.

But pictures are thoughts that so rarely are told,
For fear of appearing too forward and bold.

And castles are built in the daydreamer's heart,
A lifetime of wishes still lifetimes apart.

And yet we are richer for all that we feel,
No matter how abstract, no matter how real.

For joy is a picture we paint in our minds,
And love is the castle our hearts hope to find.

Find everyday joy
in the simple things in life...

The smell of hot coffee and
pancakes in the morning,

Fireflies flickering in the clear night air,

The cool morning fog as the sun comes up
and warms the day;

The colors of a beautiful and peaceful sunset,

A bee buzzing in a patch of spring flowers,

The kindness in the smile of a stranger;

The warm feeling of a hug
from someone who loves you,

The quiet sound of the ocean on the shore,

The twinkling of the stars in the sky...

The reassuring thoughtfulness from
someone who calls you friend.

And, then relax, and be thankful...

for your everyday joys.
