Where Does Joy Live?

A poem

Where does joy live?

Maybe it’s in the timbre of your loved ones laugh,
or within the creases of their eyes as they smile,
or the laugh lines that surround their mouth.

Maybe it’s in the way a child delights
in their very first piece of cake, or the
spray from the waves of the ocean
as it splashes upon their face.
