The art of joy
is having a love affair with life.
It is embracing life, drawing close to you
all the beauty and wonder and goodness
of the universe
It is having a heart aglow with
warmth for all your companions on the
journey of life.
It is an expression of inner music
it is radiating joy as does a band of
musicians marching down the street.
It is a blend of laughter and tears.
often it is the deep joy that comes to you
through the mist
of the years
as you recall tender memories
of joyous days gone by.
It is sharing
the joyous person
seems to be
plugged into the sun itself.
Joy is love bubbling forth into life.
