“JOY” In the Afternoon
It was an afternoon nap.
I was so tired
Quickly, I was under.
It was snowing and the world was white.
The sun was bright in the crystallized sky.
A flash of red from the side-
A little bundle only a few feet high.
I watched in wonder
I smiled in awe.
Then, the little boy hit me…
With a snowball.
I laughed and asked his name.
He said it was something that started with a “J”.
Who are you? I asked again
He replied, “I am your JOY.”
My eyes flashed open and the dream was gone.
I was left with the feeling that “J”
Would be my future grandson.
