A Smile Reborn - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

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....!

    Great thought to keep oneself happy ever by carrying a smile (not the fake one) at least once a day.......or otherwise we are no less a ghost! (Report) Reply
