joy

can you feel it?
the emotion inside
of you -- you know,
the kind that allows
your heart to play
almond joy 
four four time
double dutch

what makes
you happy?

the sound
of your child's
giggle bursts?

the smell
of the ocean
air before
a storm?

or, perhaps
that moment
of solitude
that you are
afforded

at 1:27 am
when the house
is rendered silent
and dark

the perfect
time to finish
this poem
