Your smile

O breathe a word
or two of fire
smile as if those words
should burn me

..seeing your smile..
..the seas caught fire.
..fishes started flying..
..this planet ripped open....
..and the moon emerged..
..from the chest of the earth....
..hundreds of madmen..
..danced at this glorious sight..
..seeing your smile..
..poetry rose to its epitome. gained further heights.. your smile got wider...
..thousands of adages became meaningless..
..for words escaped from languages..
..and burned at the altar of your smile..
..seeing your smile..
..hundreds of dervishes began to dance..
..not knowing what they were dancing about..
..but just because you cared to smile..
..Sages finally attained their spiritual liberation..
..and the whirl of the Sufi's became more menacing..
..for madness radiated from the skin of your smile..
..seeing your smile..
..the might of one thousand armies was destroyed..
..and the cavalry of one thousand cannons silenced..
...the roar of one thousand lions subdued...
..and the glory of the ancient kings reduced to rubble..
..for the arrows of your smile vandalized everything on its way..
..seeing your smile..
..a spirit entered inside this poet to flesh these lines..
.. for these lines ran like blood in his body..
..and he found the key to the secret of all languages..
..that he had always wanted to unlock..
..and unleash the poem of his poems..
..but in your smile..
...also lay hidden the last line of this poem.. that you don't seem to smile..
..this poem will forever remain unfinished.
..and this this unknown poet..
..will decay in obscurity...: (: (

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
    beautiful sir well done
