Joy Clarke Therapy

Joy is me

Joy, being me.

Joy in me, joy in you.
Joy in flow and joy in slow.
Joy in being, joy in sleeping,
Joy in go, joy in no.

Joy in walking, joy in talking.
Joy in silence, and in laughter.
Joy for loving, and for holding,
Joy for boldness and for going.

Joy in brightness. Joy in darkness.
Joy in the depths of everlasting harshness.
Joy in grieving, honouring the passion of No! and Not this!
And joy in the despair, the never ever knowing-ness

Joy in peace, joy in worry.
Joy in calm, joy in scurry.
Joy in quiet and in the flurry
Of people and places and planning and us-ness.
