Welcoming Joy

IMG_0176

One sorrow can flood

an entire day

a week

a lifetime.

Joy can be as fleeting

as the hummingbird that

suddenly appears

hovers

and vanishes in

thin

seconds.

In this life,

we will always experience both

sorrow and joy.

I have these questions:

how to allow yourself to feel deep sorrow

without being overcome and

undone?

And how do you welcome the joy

knowing its

sweet brevity?
