Message from Writer

Write. Keep writing no matter what happens. Eventually, you'll find something that just clicks. You need to write until you reach the moment where you can look back and say, "I did what I loved and I made progress that I am proud about." So keep writing. Never give up.

Joy (a Tanka)

Joy is a feeling
The feeling of being safe
Like a soft sunrise
Birds singing beautifully
Like the soft grass tickling you

    I really like that you clarified "The feeling of being safe." It does a good job of differentiating happiness and joy. A person can be happy, but still on-edge. Happiness can fade and disappear or even be gone in an instant, but with joy you feel safe. Joy comes in the places you feel most secure, and that isn't going anywhere. Joy is far more real, and far more beautiful.
