The smile of life

The smile of life

 
I saw her coming

her translucent body

wrapped in morning dew

and then with a wisp

and a wave

her slender arms

gathered the wind

and carefully laid

the veil of light

about her shoulders

she then brushed her hair 

with the wind that flowed 

like a river of light

reflecting sunshine

and in the night, stars, 

and with the radiant smile

of a half moon, she bid me –

Adieu.
