Smile

A smile is slow to fade. Her son
is grinning still from magazines,
from playgrounds, bikes and prams – a mine
of memories and could-have-beens.
A smile is slow to fade, once known.

I really like that. Simple and to the point, but with layers of meaning to ponder and unravel.

Just stumbled across your blog and I'm liking what I'm finding :-)

Cheers !

Thanks Martyn. I had a quick glance at your blogs too. They looked interesting. I'll have another look when I've more time.
