Morning Joy

the morning comes, along with it joy

stemming directly from gratitude employed

for even the tears of the night before

ebbs and flows of life neither one deplore

joy comes calling upon the receptive

who thankfully daily rise irrespective

of their daily trails due to perceptive perspective

and vision of life not needing corrective

lenses to bend this reality to fit

fantasy when it fits perfectly like this

all things are transitional whether pedestal or pit

as well as complementary hence foolishness and wit

i say all of that to simply say this

it’s not just the experience but our responsiveness to it

joys are sweetened by troubles while struggle inspires true grit

either way…

keep a smile in your heart and a twinkle in your eye

a song on your breath and a melody in your mind

don’t dare forget that inner light that shines

illuminates ones way and ripens grapes on the vine  

within one’s vineyard which yields contributory wine

a worthy libation gracing tables where we dine

on the bitter and the sweet

the savory seasoned meat

where the sharing of a meal makes every dish a treat

for those with appreciation for both wakefulness and sleep…
