Remembering Joy

Dear Spirit to Spirit friend,

In these days of sometimes- perhaps often- finding it difficult to remember the joy, here is a poem by Mary Oliver.

If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don't hesitate. Give in to it.

There are plenty of lives and whole towns

destroyed or about to be.

We are not wise, and not very often

kind. And much can never be redeemed.

Still, life has some possibility left. Perhaps this

is its way of fighting back, that sometimes

something happens better than all the riches

or power in the world.

It could be anything, but very likely you notice

it in the instant when love begins.

Anyway, that's often the case.

Anyway, whatever it is, don't be afraid of its plenty.

Joy is not made to be a crumb.

In Gratitude & Love, Joanna
