Fullness of Joy

cascade-blue-ridge-parkwayA stream flows freely from my heart;
It cannot be stopped—
Laughing, trickling, gurgling, bubbling,
Over weed and rock.

Nor wind nor storm can it abate;
Troubles make it strong—
Churning, swirling, perking, gushing,
My joy follows on.

The famine can be difficult;
Almost dries it up—
Ebbing, gliding, coursing, flowing,
Springing from my cup.

  1. Thank you very much for your comment, and for the nomination. I cannot respond to it this week because there’s too much on my plate already, so if you’d like to pass it on to someone else, that’s fine. Otherwise, I’ll accept and respond next week. Thank you.

  3. What a beautiful portrait of a loving heart! Surviving through a famine is such an eloquent way of describing certain periods of life that come to us all while the blessing of love flowing from our hearts still continues to flow and sustain us. So Well done!!!
