Explaining Taoism


What is joy?
Is it having things that spring from you?
Things that shout, and giggle, and fly?
Is it feeling like you are splitting open
like a ripe melon about to explode your moorings?
Is it that twinkle that you are certain is sparking
straight from your eyes into the unexpected sky?
Is it that racing heart that doesn’t care about your nerves
just wants to dance the rhumba and whirl slowly
in circles that are lit by bubbles?

What is joy?
Why does it exist?
Is it there to remind us,
that life is meant to be fun?
That questions exist
to excite the heart
and ignite the mind?
Make sudden hitches in breath
as we suddenly surge
into some awakened moment
that becomes so much
so much more than feeling.

It becomes a start
a journey
a sacred blessing
like life.
like love.
like knowing
for the very first time
that this is where you want to be
right where you are.
because it is the moment
that you have realized
that you matter!
