The Subtle "Wow"

By Dan Mulhollen

No fireworks
or crescendo of emotions.
Those come later,
when the happy realities sink in.

Now there is just calm;
a sense of comfort in the gentle breezes.
Quiet satisfaction,
understanding how right these moments truly are.

It must be experienced to be understood.
as a tangible expression,
always is that way.

The timid may look on with envy,
their courage eluding them.
The jaded miss the point entirely,
unfeeling, unwilling to feel.

But we have both
tasted this freedom.
We've taken the chance,
and know the magic of the subtle "wow."
