Rookie - 145 Points (19, April,1951 / kalubovila East, Sri Lanka)

A beautiful widow's upstage

When the juggler smiled,
Her tear dropp not responded and kept quiet.
He was angry and scolded;
'Don't you know how to smile really? '
Then the tear dropp replied;
'After he left the premises
I have never seen such an innocent smile again.'

    What you see is not what is the real senario of human emotion. We display what people want to see not what is within us. Reality is not in the same side of what being exibit infront of us.

    Splendid. But sad at the same time. Innocent smile really we have lost.

    Tear dropp is a character here. Tear dropp who also can respond with smile, innocent smile but not with the mechanical possession.


    Live long.......write more........
