Joyful and Triumphant
Do we look for it, or does it catch us unaware?
A moment that can frame a day, a season.
Warmth bringer in cold times
A precious element in a rocky journey.
Grains trickle over nude toes,
Tender waves tickle arches and nails.
Light skipping like a stone,
Ever-changing, but a constant.
Lying in twisted sheets,
Grey light permeates the pane,
Natures choristers warming the day,
Swooping high and shallow.
Fontanelles encased in soft down,
an aroma like no other,
a wistful smile and glowing heart,
life forever changed.
A sabbath day treat,
New drama, encased in twists,
Plots thicken and then,
A sudden gasp, wide eyed surprise.
A heaving mass of rhythmic soul,
Clenched and swaying,
A front mans swagger brings surge and envy,
Captured in a verses call.
Mondays dull ache and struggle,
Classes amble and struggle,
Then suddenly an awakening,
A sea of hands, pure reward.
The opening bar, a crescendo in noise.
Projected back, moments in three minutes,
Words that stay a lifetime,
Lifting over troubled waters.
Then a muscles insignificant flex,
Bodies inner light-switch launched,
A stranger, a mother, a child,
From despair to hope.
So what does it bring?
Where can it take us?
Accelerate us away from the dark,
Enter our hearts and stay; joy.
