-x- What Makes You Smile ?! -x-


What makes me smile
It’s hasn’t happened in a while
Leting go of low self esteem
Just existing so free
Finding again my Zen
My true, old friend
-x What Make You Smile?! -x-


Letting go can do so much.
Together we can make a change
with just one touch.
Your smile can change everything
to someone's bad day
to making birds sing.
Change someone's frown.
Enlighten them,
turn it upside down. :)


In just a few blinks
I'll feel a few kinks
I'll see a few sights
And everything will be alright
As I trip
I feel out of this world
As I forget
I smile in the face of the abyss in which I've been hurled


Already the month
of August 2018,
May never become
a je June'm
(Forget-me-not)
time of year,
especially for nouveau
homeless and,
penniless residents,
(now more like worrier),
who reside in the
(burnt to a crisp)
Golden State where,
towering uncontrollable
wild fire infernos veer.


The laugh of a child would melt hearts made of stone
The chase that results in a satisfied groan
The moment I witness some loved ones at at
The feeling of rising to see a new day
These things are all priceless
What warms my smile's
The return of a friend who's been gone for a while


I draw cartoons and I write light rhymes
So when I’m out I oftentimes
Seek out matters quite obscure
And situations immature
And though I may appear senile
They set me off and make me smile
~Michael Edwards~


A memory
A morning
A field deep in mist
A dawning
A warming
A horse by my side
Ready to ride
The Sun


I wish that it was easy to say
The happy things which turn my frown away
I guess it is in moments of mummy pride
That beautuful love is one of a kind
It's also in the mountains, the ocean and tree
One day I hope I will smile at me


There's often a tear in between my heart
I go outside to feel the sun shining against my smooth skin
I feel the breeze that is flowing my hair all in my face
I look at the shapes from the clouds above
but what couldn't make me smile brighter
is a hug from a loved one.

        I wish I could have seen this earlier. I would have added something to it! I guess its not too late...

        Everyone lies,
        We do it to save our lives,
        At the lowest of low,
        A smile is true,
        This I know,
        Enough to tame a tiger,
        And in that, trust binds us tighter.

        A smile never lies

          BLACK is nights cape
          Inferno it encapsulates
          UNTIL
          Banging her drums
          Maxine screams as she comes
          Abrupt yet so certain
          A pure relentless momentum
          You are torn
          You are ripped
          You are not beaten
          This rhythm of life
          Leaves you yearning
          The one
          That is out there waiting
