What BE this Joy...

is it the artist that lives passion
is it the poet with an ever present word
is it the beauty of Creation's grace
is it the knowing truth in heart's chamber I place
is it the quest within each breath I breathe
is it the receiving, the giving, I perceive
what moves this body, this heart, this soul
to fulfill life's journey beyond each toll
what vision, what joy be there in this life known
but the spoils of love in the All of Creation shown.
