Crazy Faith

The smile that finds you
in the throes of
heartache surely life altering
as it is unstoppable.

The sun ray that
brightens your cloudy soul
on the heaviest day.

The flash of joy
its mission
to embrace
and keep you;
its only invitation —
the slightest, smallest YES.

And the short breadth of an instant,
that yields understanding:
Any time, any place, or anywhere,
in the midst of any situation,
choosing joy, leaves room for healing
for hope.
