Finding Joy

Joy eluded me

And when I was not

Looking for her

She approached to greet me

A moment like the one

When you see your loved one

In a crowd of travelers at the

Inbound terminal

Once the bags are loaded

And you hit the pike

They do not have the same luster

But you love them with the same force

I am joyful knowing that I am

Able to be found by Joy

If only for a moment


I Caught a Glance In the Mirror

I saw the sign

Upon seeing her

I did rejoice

Like those who

Rejoiced upon the

Perishing of Zion

She was a mirror


A heart yet wicked

Feel Full (but not too full)

I wished that you may always feel full

But may you never feel too full

May you never feel too satisfied

That you never tire of seeking that which makes you wonderful


Sublime Affection

Due to you I am part of the family once again

It is a sublime affection with many many layers

One of which is being cut out

I imagine you will one day dwell among angels

The Amazon

There is one who has

The entire rain forest to himself

The wet and wild beauty

And brutality


There is another who has

A single pure drop of water

Which he fears may be

Required with greater
