If one day you discover joy
Hidden in tubes and splashes of colour
Don’t try to become the master of joy.
Learning the technique of joy
Is like putting structure into your emotions
Like drawing lines between this and that
Between how it is and how it should be
When emotions are supposed to mingle.
When you choose a colour
You’re not hidding the opposite
They live peacefully together.
I don’t want to be the master of joy anymore
I just want to feel it
In peace with myself and the rainbow of emotions.
This is not a poem
Although it has these strange breaks at the end of the row
And this is not a painting
It’s just joy splashed on canvas
