Gift of Garden Smiles Day 29 #NaPoWriMo

Photo by Wesley Carvalho on

In its’ most gentle power

are smiles like flowers 

 they’ll open -soft petals to you

hinty whiffs of lavender and dandelions 

to pick them clean off the bone 

relax the creaks of muscles 

stiff and achy joints

relieve the croaky moans

sending signals across the body-verse 

sigh of great relief, like a raisin born in the sun

shushing, quietly into borders

shushing away, worries of the day

so if you should sit a tiny bit, 

and feel its gentle power,

 I pray, your smile will contain, 

a glow of beauty for the soul, 

a gleaming light of peace 

luminous and grand,

morning in the heart,

 until nothing can resist 

this garden of smiles 

I pray.😊

    This is, as always, so beautiful. It painted such a delicate picture in my mind. I’m aware that today is the last day of #NaProWriMo, and I just wanted to say what a special experience and pleasure your poetry has been to read over this time. I know I only came along in the middle of the month, but I really appreciate the wonderful poet you are. You have so much talent. I couldn’t have done 30 days of poetry flat out! Thank you for sharing with me all your work. I’m looking forward to seeing and reading what you write next. Take care, my dear friend. Ellie x ❀ ❀ ❀

        You are so welcome, Krissy. I’ve enjoyed every one of your poems. I’ll read today’s entry later on. I’m starting a six-week writing course from this Wednesday – it’ll mean lots of coursework though, which I’ll enjoy. I’m just a bit worried I might not be able to spend so long writing my memoirs or reading the work of my blogging friends. I’ll have to see how it goes. Blogging has improved my confidence in my writing, though, which can only be a good thing πŸ’–πŸŒΌπŸ’›
