IF YOU HAVE NO REASON FOR JOY

To listen to a rollicking recording of this poem

If you have no reason for joy,
then dance because the sky is blue
and the growing grass is green.
Spin in thankfulness
because your lungs grow large
then small,
because the air caresses you
and lifts your hair,
because you have eyes to see
form and miraculous color,
because of water.
And if you can,
speak these words,
“I love you”
unto the nothing
you have always feared
you’d be…
and let nothing echo back,
“I love you,”
as light leaps up
in your bones.

IF YOU HAVE NO REASON FOR JOY

Artist's Description

A celebration of joy in the miracle of Life itself, you know, existence, this wonder we are most asleep to, being so lost in our mental conditioning and over familiarity with the astonishment of thought, words, sight, sound, feeling… all being created in consciousness, this magical mirror our silent spirit gazes at.
