April 4 Poetry Challenge Holding on to Joy

Holding on to Joy

No, no, no–
Nuh-uh. In this moment.
This singular moment when
my heart is singing when
my mind is made up of everything
I can give—
When my voice has found an ear and
my ear has found his voice
I will hold on to this joy.
This peace of something
in a piece of something real.
That all the rest
cannot destroy.
