Taking Joy

Written by: Matthew Anish

One can take joy as eyes
glow and sparkle
One can take joy 
in smiles for no reason
Wish I could throw a bolt of 
love
At the residents of this city, 
this city, this state, this country,this world
      Life is a privilege
      together we can partake 
          of the banquet 
  As stars come out at night 
and the summer draws slowly to a close
Let us taste the sweet wine 
of love, of sex, of nature, of joy 
As you enjoy 
    the fruits of life 
touch the reality 
you may have missed 
in your younger, more hasty days
