"J" is for Joyous - #A to Z Blogging Challenge 2017

Joyous is the perfect word for "J" is the A to Z Blogging Challenge. For joy, I think warm colors, and happiness in the sun. I have two little 4" x 6" watercolor paintings that I can't decide between, so I am posting both. Which do you like better for Joyous?

As I stroll through the sunset forest 
 Warm sunlight baths my face.
Joyous circles rise toward the blazing sky.
Surrounded by a sea of red, the air glistens.

The perfumed scent of roses encircles me,
And I smile into the dancing breeze.
Enchanted, I remember the fairy gardens
Where astonishing creatures hide.

Magic thrives among the trees.
I am sure of that.
Trees know a lot,
But they keep their secrets well. 

Where are the fairies? I wonder.
They bring their joy with them
As they skip among tree trunks
And waltz into my heart.

I like the first one best for joyous. The lines give it a vibrant feel.

This is tough but I go for the 2nd one because of the oranges are more inThis painting and I think of orange as Joy. The first one makes me think of passion. I love your poem with the fairies....
