“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.
