Joy

A simple thing
Complex in it's way

A scent
A sound
A taste

That first touch
Fingers brushing fingers
Fear passed

And seeing that smile
From eyes to lips

For such a short and simple word it does indeed have so many delightful and wonderful connotations. The eyes that smile always does it for me. Well done.

Very nice. Nothing inconsequential about that.

joy is simple, but in our complex society, people have to make such a big deal about it, that they cannot attain it easily

That first touch Beautifully put - is so many different ways can that first touch be joyful and remembered forever!
