Joy!

Standard

This poem was inspired by ideas from Rita K. on Nurturing Literacy, “Technology Bridges the Gap.”

Joy!
A brilliant, yellow ray of sunlight 
piercing through darkened sky
sparkling, sparking, sparking
bursting through cloudy covers
A sunshine bath
drenching warmth,  swirling laughter
encircling, encircling, encircling
 with unseen arms
A spoonful of sherbert
melting, melting, melting
exploding with smooth sweetness
yumminess on my tongue
An eternal spring 
bubbling, bubbling, bubbling 
upward from the ground
 mysterious, unseen source
A twirling, twirling, twirling
around and around 
barefoot in cool green grass
head thrown back
arms stretched wide
Joy!
