A Poem about Life

And All Around You...
by Gail Huntley

The joy of life
is not in what happens;
it is in the motion,
the child's laughter
The lover's tear
the piercing prick of passion
the swaying hips of a young girl
the gnarled hands of an old woman,
it is in the illumining soul of man
the swollen breasts of a new mother;
it is in a heart cracked and scared
it is in eyes humbled by sunsets
it is in the movement of all
it is in the constantly changing
incredible dance of life.
