Puddles




yes . .

  i like to linger in words
     and the way
         they caress the sky
                           in poetic array

                  but,

there are days when peace finds me,
and i get lost in the simple things
             that most take for granted

      like,

a pinwheel smile
         that somehow tickles the lonely,
   one spotlight dance
              forever cheering the soul,
even the precious joy of

             Puddles . .

a place where laughter
continues to splash
          and where my heart,
   will always remain

Brandy: You do so well in a few words. My go on for days. A picture may be better than a thousand words, especially if it didn't take a thousand words to produce it. :o) oldbuck
