Some smiles light a fire that you didn’t know you had burning inside.
Those flames come to pull you from a place you can no longer hide.
The moment you came out to play – your spirit was instantly burned to ash.
You were not paying attention to the road, thus inevitably inviting a crash.
If only you had purchased insurance to save you from this COSTLY dread.
When looking for the needle, you brushed up against the soft thread.
so, no worries about the glass that has just fallen onto the hard surfaced floor.
Lightning travels faster than sound – the burst of surprise seems to always even the score.
You can arise out of the swampy gloom!
Or maybe stay in the dark corners and explore the haunted tomb?
“For as prismatic radiance walks up the stairs, to decorate a room loaded with white paint.
Think not of the colors which will remain or those that will taint.
The smile of this light redistributes energy, previously unbeknown to me.
For now the twinkle in your eyes has flourished the withering tree.
Forever I see, the reasons that smiles have come to be!
“For the smile of your love is guided by an abstract and randomized beat.
Now the stars can’t help but smile as your illumination has given them a front-row seat!”
Dedicated to all of those near and far who have recently given me another reason to smile. Some smiles travel miles in illuminating styles! 🙂
