Smile Once Again - Poem by Alan Reed

If I could see your heart smile once again
Colors would return
to my life in pen
Sanction my karma as patina
to the Golden Hen
And join nature's orchestra
as its fife in the fen

I would see the stars
much more grandiose
And demand the sweetest
flowers go unpicked
I would not let
my hubris get in the way
To an end that only
tragic flaws can predict

We would clasp
the enchantment
surrounding us,
never wishing
the world away
Saying little
but talking a lot
A higher authority
presenting the dharmic way

As two sweet peas
in the glen
Never let life
take on the
flavor of cayenne
Or become the voice
of the herdsmen
Let that smile stay
Never a fib
I will say -
and enjoy peace once again
