A smile …

A smile

like one star shining

on a cloud-shrouded night  ..

A smile

illuminating

the bruised-black sky

with reflected light

from infinite space.

A smile from beyond

the darkness ..

starlit … on a child’s face … .

    Hello Marya – I imagine you had my little grandchildren in mind when you wrote this! Indeed, their smiles are heaven-sent. But then, aren’t all good things of that provenance? 🙂

    (I see you have been busy in my absence.)

    Hello Jamie …

    It’s good to see you this evening 🙂 Yes, I’ve been slightly busy …

    Yes, as Wordsworth wrote about infancy … ‘trailing clouds of glory’

    ps
    I hope to see those photos of your Easter holiday soon .. when you have time, of course.

    Lovely. You capture the essence of a smile very well. It truly ‘illuminates’ darkness.

    Yes, atom, the weekend started off beautifully with the Royal Wedding on Friday. A delightful, all-consuming affair! Was so grateful it did not rain on the day as the forecast had said. And now the sun has been delighting us every day.

  8. atomsofstars says:

    Yes, a joyous occasion, Shermeen.

    Sun has deserted us here today .. very blustery with heavy rain forecast but Mr.Toad will be pleased .. 🙂
