A smile stretches,
And cracks open my heart.
Letting a soft, warm light
Illuminate the fringes of my world.
Spreading from head to fingertips to toes.
This glowing feeling,
Happiness, emanating back
to the corners of my upturned lips.
And exposing my burning core
set ablaze with delight and peace.

This poem popped into my head as I was flying to Colorado for my niece’s wedding. The warm feeling that a smile can bring, and how easily it can change your attitude.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The pictures here are selfies taken at various times over the last 2 years without a cell phone, as I do not have one. I used the Photo Booth app on my Mac.
I leave you with a few additional words about a smile. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
