Share the Joy Thursday: In Many Guises

Joy comes in many packages.

Tree fingers reaching for an icy blue sky
when your breath makes little clouds.

Things seen through the cloudy haze of memory
and things that are merely imagined.

Things reminiscent of times past.
Pale blue and green glass.

Full moons on nights when the clouds give way
to let the heavens sparkle.

In what wrappings did you find JOY
this week?

Share the JOY.

To play along:

1. do a post that tells and shows us what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post 
and paste it into the Mr. Linky box 
along with your name.

3. visit other players -- as many as possible -- 
and let their joy infect you.  
Leave them a comment about their post.
Let's start an epidemic of joy!

my joy came wrapped in holy fire!
I always like to imagine what came in old bottles--and what might go in them again!

love the old bottles - have you heard of a ghost tree? We have a dead tree in the back yard that I am hanging colored bottles on. When I lived in NM i would see bottles hanging in trees and yards - love them! My brother and I used to go digging for old bottles at old home sites. Thanks for reminding me.
