your smile

a most timid breeze breathes
across the newly leafing trees
that encircle my birthing world,
gently scattering bare blossoms
like whirling wisps twisting
turning ever yearning to rise
once more into shimmering skies
of deepest meaningful blue

I watch them falling finally
coming to rest nestling among
the bright blades of grass
that tickle the feet of children
prancing playful in dayful
dreams laughingly entranced,
and I wonder at just how joyful
my chanting cheerful heart

ascends on wings singing
to heaven’s gate gratefully
guided by the blissful smiles
you bless me with every day
