Advertisement for Joy




This life wants you


to be its walking advertisement


for joy.



To blare this message


loud and proud


and also with nuance



filled with the fine print


of peace and inner delight,



and the subliminal messaging 


of acceptance and  wholeness


written into every movement--



the lift of your smile,


the way your glance


falls upon things,


whatever your heart


rushes towards,


your bravery at finally


taking up those things


that have always called you,


the wink in your soul.



Oh, let life use you this way


to be its finest marketing rep



to sway masses


towards their hearts.



It doesn't promise to pay


but I promise



this job was made


for you. 




-Chelan Harkin, Let Us Dance
