The Way of Joy

on the laundry line
articles blow in the wind

man, woman, child
in the garden picnicking

fun times in the sunny clime
fresh food on a mint blanket

good drink and lush greens
you’d think it was a market

love in their hearts, on their minds…
uplifted spirits

the joy a family unit brings
like a spring in the desert

    Heath, the simplicity of the scene and the joy of a family “like a spring in the desert” makes me thirsty.

    Thanks, Heath. This is my year for family. In two weeks I travel to Birmingham Alabama to perform my nephew’s wedding. All my siblings will be there to celebrate.

    That sounds great. I’m sure you’ll have fun with your siblings in the south. Looking forward to reading about your time there.
