Shining Moments of Joy

Joy blossoms full

dependent upon no specific action

spreading within my soul

shining through my spirit

in moments

captured in time

Swinging with my head back, hair streaming, eyes closed, heart open

to possibilities

First rush of infatuation, heat blooming, blushes and flirting

Heart enraptured, captured by the tiny hand of a newborn

Wedding day jitters, calmed by the sight of the man waiting for me as I walk towards our future

Cool breezes full of salt smell, warm sand beneath my feet, sun baking my worries away

Shrill laughter, quiet giggles and belly laughs as children play and dream

Damp earth beneath my knees and within my grasp as I plant new growth in the ground

Dew seeping through my clothing as I lay in the grass and dream

Huge harvest moon lighting my way through midnight's darkness

Running, stretching, muscles burning, feeling my body work as it is meant to

Rich chocolate bliss melting upon my tongue

Crisp sheets still warm from the sun, smelling of the breezes that dried them

Deep red wine swirling in a crystal glass, dry and tart within my mouth

Sticky boy kisses and dirty boy hugs, the sweet smell of a baby just after a bath

Snuggling on a lazy morning, safe, warm and loved

Belly laughs, silly movies and inside jokes that no one else understands

Seeing my daughter grow to be the woman I believe she can be, confident, independent, happy

Gazing at the night sky, unexpected shooting stars bringing wishes


Shining moments

captured in time

bringing joy

all unexpected.
