Loving One Another

Choose Joy Today


I love playing around with various poetry forms. I love learning about new forms. Yesterday I encountered a “Dalit” for the first time. Do you know it? It is 4 lines of 8 syllables each. I thought that would be fun to try. Here we go…


The choice is yours – choose joy today.
We are blessed to be in sunshine.
I select happiness today,
And it splashes over to you!

Yes, even if you are in rain or snow,
you can have sunshine in your heart.
My heart prays for peace in war-torn places.
My heart prays for safety for those in Harm’s Way.
My heart prays for rain in Australia
and stability in all places of turmoil.
My heart prays for joy in your heart.
Choose joy!

Try a Dalit poem. Share it!
And Have a Marvelous Monday!
See ya later.

  2. Choose Joy! I use to belong to a women’s group called “Just Joy”. And yes it is our choice.

  3. The joy is surely our strength. Joy really does change a life – as does the absence of it. This ol’ world is deeply troubled and your sunshine sure does bring love to a love starved population. Thank you for being you! We need your voice. You are such a blessing to us all! 🙏🏼
