Iconic smile

When I see you smile,

An emerald green hue spreads around

Creating a wondrous sight,visceral,

With implacable softness.

Myriad facets of nature emerge

From the unfathomable volumes of beauty,

Sacred and serendipitous.


All my worries vanish in a twinkling,

Stripped off of all the complexities of life.

Imbued with feelings gentle,

I feel I can rise like an eagle,

I feel I can touch the scintillating stars

And converse with the angels in flowery lanes,

My emotional intelligence teasing theirs.


With a single smile of yours,

New valleys are formed,

New lands emerge,oceans change colors,

The singing of the constellations can be heard

And the soft voice of love felt.


I see the Giza pyramids,

The Orion belts,

the Grand Canyon

And the pristine glory of love shines

Touching all the creations of God.

I feel awakened, revived,

Brightened and energized

When soft you smile

That iconic smile.
