Smiles are resplendent and immortalized

Sometimes one not need be verbose to make a statement.




My face

Gleams

Reflecting the

Smile

In my

Heart.

      I think a lot of my comments are overly verbose, lol , but that said, life is short and I like to make people feel good about themselves and say nice things which is not bad for a guy who has lost his confidence in life (often due to , ironically, because of people)

      So Shauna I must say with all sincerity that you make my heart gleam every time we connect whether it's on your page or mine.

      I just woke up after night shift sleep to the most gorgeous sunny day with both cats Tiffy and Gabriel outside and loving it. I am having my first cup of coffee with a cd of opera highlights and I am here wishing you a very nice day and we are sending you our good thoughts at lake erie time 11:43am canada

      Ha ha! Too funny! Mine's pretty etched. No botox erasing these laugh/worry lines!

      It's not ironic Sha; I just took the time to get to know you as a person. :)

      Hey, Rich! You snuck up on me as I was responding to billybuc! I'm tickled you have commented so quickly. I have several hubbers to which I jump when I see they've written something new. For you to have responded within minutes of my posting, I'm honored and flattered.

      For you to feel something from the nine words of this simple poem, validates my choice in posting.

      Thank you my new friend. You're an awesome writer. Your praise adds to my momentum in striving towards my dream!

      Well chosen words and with wonderful meaning. Well done, bravewarrior.

      I can always count on you to take time for me in your busy life, Bill. Thanx for your words of encouragement. Yes, I've found myself and believe strongly in "me". It's ironic you've seen deeper into this poem than most. I'm known for always smiling, singing and seeing the good in every situation. When I'm not smiling (usually when I'm trying to discern an anomaly and redirect it), I'm deep in thought.

      Anyway, I guess most people perceive me as a positive, smiling person. That's a nice personification!

      Thanx for being the first to comment, my friend. BTW, your favorite picture of Bev is also mine. With the mountains in the foreground and her stretching body facing them, I can imagine her drawing nature into her being as fortification for the new day. I do much the same with the sun. I close my eyes, lift my face to the sun, stretch my arms and let it's rays energize me!

      Love Ya, Buddy!

      Hugs to Bev!

      I would say that you have said it all here. I love the smile you portray through your words and I love that you have found yourself again. I would say those are reasons to celebrate.

      Sending you hugs and love from 3000 miles away
