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


Connections...


Shining moments

captured in time

bringing joy

all unexpected.
