Joy List -poem

Post by there » Fri Nov 23, 2018 11:44 pm

My Joy List

pink sunsets,
candy cigarettes,
a belly laugh
a photograph
stars at night
scars from a righteous fight



a purring cat
a party hat
tears that cleanse
rules that bend
an orange moon
a whistled tune

the warmth of your hand
bare feet in sand
the river's flow
angels of snow


a gentle breeze
a pile leaves
the smell of rain,
the end of pain

Anything I missed?

a tender kiss
imperfect pitch
"I wanna watch the ocean bend---the edges of the sun then---i wanna be swallowed up---in an ocean of love"
from 'Ventura' by Lucinda Williams

think I'd substitute 'freedom from debt"
for "candy cigarettes" :)

too late to edit
