the sweetest smile

the sweetest smile
from this tiniest face
paints playful palettes
of gold and green
across my quiet soul

one look is all
appalling stealth and
wealth and leaving
artless deceptions dangling
in petulant wonder

for this, my lords and
ever torporous ladies
is what life really looks like
when languid you decry
the brightness of day

Me and my baby girl, Leona Mae

      • I really need to get into the habit of using emojis. See? I’m not even sure how to spell that word! Bloody git! Sorry. I was smiling when I wrote that response, dear. I didn’t feel criticized at all. Just enjoying your humor. … Hmm, okay, uh, now how do, uh, how do you make a winking smily kind of face? πŸ˜‰ Is that it? And this is precisely why my 16-year-old daughter suggests that I was alive during the dinosaur days!
