Happy and Joyous

How do I capture something
So beautiful and wondrous
As the experience of joy
And happiness?

Why is it so much easier
To write about pain and grief
Or emotional turmoil
Or even relief?

But happy and wondrous
Seem to pass without mention
I wonder if it’s because there’s no
Need to relieve tension?

Take today for example
When the sky was such a
Deep and flawless blue which was
Echoed by the sea

It seems the words just
Don’t do justice to the
Incandescent beauty of the scene
So why bother?

But then a friend reminded me
How the happy and joyous
Pass us by without the
Slightest of mentions

So here is my pledge
For all the world to see
That at least once a month
The words will be joyous and happy

    • I’m not sure of the reason, all I know is that there seem to be less words, less urgency to write, when I’m happy and there is no emotional turmoil. Thank you for taking the time to comment ❤
