Joy

To wake
with a lightness of spirit
and a reason to smile,
to feel gratitude
for the gift of a day,
to rise, to face the sun,
smiling and aware, 
to acknowledge care
but not to be submerged

To embrace joy,
accept the limitations
of the heart
and the soul
and accept life whole
and imperfect
and still find joy
in it’s foibles
and in my own.
