Continuing with a journal I wrote seven years ago, where I examined positive and negative reactions to people, things and circumstances, here is my latest found poem. I've taken a section of my notes concerning positive emotional reactions, and have reworked them into a poem.

Any and all kinds
Fill me with
That first tiny green shoot
Dormant buds in spring
Goes through me
Being able to
Work my body
Not accompanied by asthma
Makes me feel strong and very happy
When I dance
Get into the dance trance
The funkier the better
When my dog
Cuddles up to me
When we're on
Densely satisfying things
Rice, beans, oatmeal
Lentils and bread
Encircled with family love
Having a rub
Husband's sexy voice
Beautiful smile and deep blue eyes
Exquisite feeling of being truly alive
- Julia Smith, 2009 / original text 2002

Beautiful smile and deep blue eyes" You could have been talking about my hubby!
