“Find ecstasy in life: the mere sense of living is joy enough.” Emily Dickinson

Beyond Happiness

that deep soaking of our
whole being beyond mere
happiness ( that fleeting imp),
that swells the soul and lifts 
our very being to the heavens,
leaving us swimming in bursts 
of feeling, rooted in openness
to the sheer simplicity of all
that is, and all that can be,
bringing us back to our truest,
whole self.
