4JOY.........Beautiful and interesting things - visual, thoughtful, and (hopefully) poetic...
I agree. I think there is a world of difference between the temporary excitement of pleasure and the calm, eternal, constant nature of joy. Though we may still only feel it in moments! Enjoy them! That baby elephant is pure joy! :-)
I believe Basho Barr has said it well!Joyful Song
True! I find my best moments anymore are when I have peace and quiet!
Joy can often be felt from within and expressed outwardly. I like the quiet joy rising in this haiku.
Very beautiful words !!!
I really like this, and I also found the snow picture joyful--not sure if it belongs with the joy, but it gave me some.
Oh how those clouds descend on the joy of youth...if we let them. Lovely, thank you :)
The quiet joys are the most significant, I think.A Joyful Haiku
I do agree. Joy sometimes is just beeing a part of nature. I am not longing for time laying on the beach but someone else is, that elephant really shows joy. :)
What a happy camper that elephant is.. :-)Eliz
