The Smile That Heals

The Smile That Heals short poem

Photo by michellecarl

Isn’t a child’s pristine smile
The sweetest of all expressions
One can ever chance to see
On a human countenance?

Doesn’t it make you forget
Your woes and worries for a while
Reviving your faith in the inherent goodness
Dwelling in all fellow humans?

The expression that is pure and pleasing
Like dew drops on rose petals
Bursting into multiple rainbows
At the touch of morning sunlight!

The smile that is cool and soothing
Like the first showers in summer
Most cherished by all living beings
As the kind heavenly saviour!

The smile that is warm and comforting
Like the touch of a loving mother
Fondling her newborn in her lap
With ultimate pride and care!

The smile that asserts life is —
Simple and sweet as a whole
And is, therefore, worth-loving
Despite all its apparent riddles!

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .
