root joy

root joy
note to self

it’s not in ideas or
feelings or things—
primary and prior,
it’s deeper than that
root joy cannot be harmed
or disturbed—it lifts out of
the big field, spreads wide
ignites mercy and love

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—they may never turn into anything more or they might flower.

    another wonderful self-note! I love “it lifts out of the big field, spreads wide, ignites mercy and love.” Extraordinary!
