Let a Joy Keep You
Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by. — Carl Sandburg

a poem written with a cat on my lap.
today is soft and gray.
the chimes are singing in the breeze
as the morning fog drifts lazily
just above the rooftops
and in through my open windows.
i breathe in the scent of the sea
and a distant rain.
it is nearly christmas.
