Joy Comes in the Morning

Shadows of night close around me Like a velvety cloak of darkness, But I recall that joy comes in the morning. written January 19, 2022

Joy comes whenever you have a piece of paper, a pencil and an idea, my poetic friend!

I can agree with that. Nothing like seeing something you wrote, too, and exclaiming, "Damn! that's good!"

Joy coming in the morning will certainly do me, but it would be nice if she came in the evening as well . . . .Aloha!

Ah, sometimes she does. Show her some attention, and you'll be graced with her attention more frequently, methinks.

Even through the darkness you anticipate the "joy" that morning brings! Beautiful. :) Paulette

Thank you, Paulette. A metaphor, of course. Even when we are going through the darkest times, we can see light at the end of the tunnel.

It is a great feeling when night is over and the sun arrives to brighten our day and we then prepare to meet new challenges. Tom

Terry, your thoughtful comment made me feel very good about this three-liner. It is sort of a paraphrase of one of Solomon's proverbs, I believe.
