The poem(s) are below...


joy is a choice

the cues to glee a soul should see
      are meant to shine through dark
         those acts of worth creating mirth
   that bloom from heaven's spark …

exquisite things the spirit sings
      to feign sweet pleasure's ploys
         revealing smiles within our trials
   and converting hurts … to joys.

Bard, I love the yin and yang of your philosophical approach to life and how often it comes out in your poetry as it does here. "Revealing smiles within our trials", I can so relate (and wish I had written this). Beautiful flow and evocative message. Well done, friend.
