#joyfuljan – Day Eleven

For today’s #joyfuljan, I find joy in poetry.


For the past 6 months or so, I have been saving poetry in my email from various sites who send a “poem a day.” I hadn’t actually read any of the poems, just merely put them in a folder for a day when I had time to just read. Today has been one of those days. I have read classic poems, contemporary poems, haiku, and even prose poems. The topics have ranged from love and hate, joy and sadness, to pastoral and whimsical. I don’t know why I put off reading them for so long. They have brought me immense joy today!

What are you joyful about today? Let me know in the comments.


Throughout the month of January, I will be celebrating Joyful January with Satya and Kaspa over at Writing Our Way Home
