November 3

All month long, we're writing poems about joy!

  1. A cup of joy

    The little things
    waking
    up
    With a breath
    R
    o
    ll
    ing
    out of
    bed
    after a night of rest
    A cup of coffee
    With a shot of cream
    and a teaspoon of sugar
    A smile from my wife
    as her dimples show
    without her knowing
    Conversation
    with a
    smile
    or a
    simple
    laugh
    Pulling the light from
    the otherwise darkened
    truth
    Lifting the moment when
    we are out of the insanity
    and back to the reality
    we would rather have
    A breakfast like a
    bowl of
    oatmeal
    with butter
    and brown sugar
    steaming hot
    only to be cooled
    enough by blowing on
    each bite
    and
    the
    sip of coffee
    topping the morning off
    with her saying

    "what are you going to do today?"
    as
    she exudes beauty
    in the company of
    her endearing words
