You never know- an ordinary sight
yet suddenly distinct, extraordinary-
it restarts your heart.
Heat, pounding heartbeats-
why couldn’t you feel them before?
I wasn’t expecting to turn around and be greeted with joy.
But joy jumped out at me to say good morning,
a little, unexpected Christmas miracle in April.
While I struggle, restrain my own life, show no surprise,
I am alive.
Jolts of joy are life.
