January Day

there is no end to joy
no beginning
we enter it’s embrace
partway along
it stretches out in any direction
farther than we can imagine
and if we will
we can be filled beyond
our most immense dreams
we are larger than our illusion of ourselves
we can contain more than we can name

I thought I knew all the rooms of my house
and then a door opened in a familiar wall
formerly solid
and beyond are all the spaces
joy opens when I see your eyes
