    This week's Infuse Joy poem is by Zoketsu Norman Fischer
    There may be a long list of things to do, but really, there is just one thing on the list at any time. 
    If you think of it like that, the whole world looks different and you can stay quite calm. 
    Maybe everything will get done eventually and maybe not. 
    You can always have hope.

    Winter Morning 

    When I can no longer say thank you 

    for this new day and the waking into it, 

    for the cold scrape of the kitchen chair 

    and the ticking of the space heater glowing 

    orange as it warms the floor near my feet, 

    I know it is because I’ve been fooled again 

    by the selfish, unruly man who lives in me 

    and believes he deserves only safety 

    and comfort. But if I pause as I do now, 

    and watch the streetlights outside winking 

    off one by one like old men closing their 

    cloudy eyes, if I listen to my tired neighbors 

    slamming car doors hard against the morning 

    and see the steaming coffee in their mugs 

    kissing their chapped lips as they sip and 

    exhale each of their worries white into 

    the icy air around their faces—then I can 

    remember this one life is a gift each of us 

    was handed and told to open: Untie the bow 

    and tear off the paper, look inside 

    and be grateful for whatever you find 

    even if it is only the scent of a tangerine 

    that lingers on the fingers long after 

    you’ve finished peeling it.
