A SMILE REBORN


A smile had long been missing from my face!
As for that matter from many a face around me! !

But I smiled yesterday believe it..
And it lasted for a few seconds indeed!

A nomad in mirth and his kiddy sibling
Passed by me singing a lyric of their own fibre...

I murmer the lyric unto the skies and my poet brethern
Who have not smiled for long....

' When you smile you are a man
Or else you are a ghost indeed'.

What made them sing so I know not...
But I had ceased to be the ghost in me for a while....!

    A smiling face is a joy to behold! Smiles often flit and go. Though it is not always possible for one to smile, there are some who keep a smile even when life growls at them! They are no longer ghosts, but they animate others! Let us learn to smile more and more! How fancifully you have woven into your poem the lay of a nomad (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
