Smile and the World Smiles with You(Or Not)


Gauntlet dropped

Question posed

Do you hide

Behind your smile?

Fumble for words

Thoughts screech to a halt

Do I? Hide?


Smile pasted

Motive questioned

Do I know what

Lurks behind my smile?

Words spin around

Emotions heat my cheeks

Does my heart

Match? My face?


By Tamara Wanner


Holy Spirit, know my heart. Keep me grounded in my Beloved. Capture all my wayward thoughts that judge, condemn and criticize. May my smile invite, encourage and show delight.
