Just A Smile

The face of the lake is still again                                                                                                         The wind has gone its way                                                                                                               Taking the rainfall and a handful of leaves with it                                                                        One illusion moves into another one                                                                                                   As the surface of the lake gives no clue to what lies beneath                                                                                                     Its like you and I smiling at each other                                                                                        I can never be sure what's going on in the depths of your emotions                                              Until you tell me                                                                                                                                      And sometimes a smile is just a smile

    the surface of a lake, in that the reflection is much like a nice, clean crystal ball, where other reflections move into one another....interesting poem, Michael. Lovely imagery. hugs, Catie :)
