Pleasure's fleeting passage leaves us
empty, wanting more...greed can visit.
Moments of complete happiness are rare
the universe is aligned, we are at peace,
secure in relationships, and goals achieved.
We're contented and satisfied for awhile.
Joy is much deeper and longer lasting
the unique profound glimpses of eternity
realized through spiritual manifestations
or whispers to our soul. Blessings come,
and we remember why we are here.
