Definition #295 Joy

axis of joy

axis of joy

handlebars: axis

of earth, pedals, spokes, and seat,

cradling toned athlete!

It’s the birthday of poet Louise Bogan,

born in Livermore Falls, Maine (1897).

She said,

“I cannot believe that the inscrutable universe turns on an axis of suffering;

surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest

on pure joy!”
