Greater Joy


 

beach 2014

 

I tried to cling to it

Keep it tucked in my

Pockets.

It dissipated

Like manna in the desert.

Needed fresh every day.

Joy.

I found it in pinkies held out,

Silly laughing tea parties.

Sea glass exchanged on a

Rocky shore.

Faces close in deep

Conversations,

Secrets, hopes shared.

I found the

Greater JOY!

It was closer

More abundant

Than I ever imagined.

It filled up more

Than my pockets.

So much more.

I found it in the numbering

The numbering of JOYS!
