The Silent Joy

The Silent Joy prose poem

Uploaded by Evelyn Colon


I am smiling simply for the joy of being here with you;
my heart could laugh about it but a smile has much more of a story to tell.

The sun is warm on my face and the music begins to play in my thoughts.
Briefly and unnoticed, he touches my hand as it rests on his arm,
swift and invisible are his caresses.
Evelyn, he says quietly,
hIs name I say silently.
“Love,” he replies.
And then I wake up and find myself living a dream.
