14 …


Smiles on a rainy day
… Or any day …
Make daisies out of
Mud puddles
And turn the rueful rain
Into splashy sparkles,
Reflecting the warmth
Of the sun.
Don’t look so startled …
And
Whatever you do,
Don’t let a frown
Muddy your pleasant face …
I simply wanted to
Brighten
Your day with a friendly
Hello.
There’s nothing wrong with that …
Is there?
No harm done,
I’m sure.
(People still speak, you know.)
I don’t even care if you return
In kind
That which I have given.
Then again,
Perhaps
I do care …
Just
A little.
