flowery smiles

roses -
you give me that classic smile
orchids -
she gives me that delicate smile
mouth edges to a side
dimple so deep
violets -
the humble smiles
at the break of dawn
in the country roads
bougainvella -
children crowd near grandma
for her warm smile
colourful tales
of yesteryears
from her wonderful years
crocus - mona lisa's
subtle and soft smile
a thousand puzzles
behind our first look
at Leonardo's mysterious woman
the royalty's cheers
that spreads
from within to us
his steady smile as he announces
his love and passion to the girl
tropical love
exotic laughters
of the lasses
in their love game
a walk through the garden
a walk through the brighter
side of humanity
the lane of angels and babies
smile, innocent smile
hearty smile, wondrous smile
oh god thanks for teaching
me all the ways to smile, to laugh
for all occasions
through all your blooms
i'll treasure them
like the butterflies
kiss and dance
with them each sunny day
till i remember all
their names and
details of their every smile

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
