That smile
that penetrates the senses,
inflames the mind,
is seen behind the face, in mirrored thoughts,
a mirage in the sky or on the lake,
within the sound
of a singing bird,
it's message is of joy,
of sheer abandon,
when all the trappings of the chores of day,
repeated like a dirge,
take wings
and catch a cacophony of feelings and sensations,
lying latent in each man,
awakened to the paradise
of freedom of expression,
an impression of a hand upon the sensitive disguise,
when eye meets eye
and throws all cares away
we live with ecstasy, another day.

I too learned some new voc.
As usual I enjoyed
and especially liked

"catch a cacophony of feelings and sensations,"
Nothing to suggest


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words ........Robert Frost☺
