A few sources of joy
Bucket full of popcorn with your favorite movie
Catching up with an old friend
Discovering a new place
Endings that turn out better than you expected
Finding money in the pocket of your trousers
Going out for a walk on a sunny day in winters
Homecoming after a long gap
In the arms of a loved one
Joking or goofing around with your friends
Late night conversations
Managing to survive a bad experience
Not giving up on a long-desired goal
Opening up to someone
Politeness from a stranger
Quiet comfort after a chaotic day
Raindrops after a heatwave and the following smell of wet soil
Singing along to your favorite song with someone
Teaching someone something and them thanking you for the success
Unpacking a box of goodies or a gift
Visiting a place on your bucket list
Waking up without an alarm clock
Xi (admire) the little things in life
Yummy food
Zoning out of work and responsibilities.

Note: With this poem in the emotive poetry series, I have experimented with the Abecedarian form to define the associated emotion.


I’m participating in #BlogchatterA2Z and this post is the tenth one corresponding to the alphabet ‘J’. Know more about the challenge and my theme here. See you tomorrow with the next alphabet and a poem around another human emotion.

Thank you for reading.

  1. This A – B – C- D should be prescribed for every young adult… read and recite at least once a day!

  2. Joyful it is 🙂 With this poem, you are actually making us realise how little or simpler acts can make for a joyful life! Glad that you penned this, Manali 🙂
