life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

buzzing

 If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that joy is not a constant state, but a low grade buzz that sometimes roars and other times purrs, but that it is always available to sink down into, if I’m feeling the ache that makes for tears or the ache that makes for celebration. – Jen Lemen

Jen Lemen says my poetry-prompt word of the day – buzz
as she reads my blog and responds. 

I love Jen Lemen over at ‘Hopeful World’ 
http://hopefulworld.org
I missed my word as I read it the first time, 
not mindful of today’s word, 
because I was still stuck in yesterday’s word ‘vine’. 
Then there it is, with a Lemen-y flair…
  
My heart leaps to attention 
I fly right there to find it 
Copy the sentence…
Smile
yes, ‘joy is a low grade buzz’
along with 
peace
love
harmony
they all live under the same everyday rooftop
once you understand them 
allow them in 
they are your friends
constant companions
making life balanced
glorious 
stable
the foundation made of jewels
gold
strong rock 
like granite 
storms come and go
the buzz stays 
and becomes the music we dance to
