Poem: Her Lovely Smile

Her lovely smile has the power to compel poetry. At an age 17 years younger, she’s Mukti Masih – a published poetess, author and successful content writer from India. After a recent exchange, I wrote this poem as I drifted into a daydream

Every time I see her smile
Heaven shines a light on me
Happy heart in sweet delight
Chasing dreams of what could be

   On the rhythm of waves
   Rang a sound from her heart
   Where the waters of love
   Know no end, only start

   On a ship under sail
   Without map, simply stars
   And a warm summer breeze
   With acoustic guitars

   On a course to the east
   Currents carry and flow
   Is this only a dream?
   Perhaps, yes, I think so

Were it not for many miles
And the years, so far apart
Both day and night - time to share
Grand adventures of the heart

  1. Thank you, Phil, for the beautiful poem. I am publishing today a post that you will find interesting. Also, it would be of great interest to your Indian friend.


  2. Mooie gedicht van je dagdromen! Ik vind dat je dit steeds met veel gevoel overbrengt! Mooi gedaan om het hart van je vriendin te verwarmen! Have a wonderful day dear Phil! 👌👍🌹

    • Heel erg bedankt, mijn beste vriendin Inge! Ik ben blij dat je mijn gedicht leuk vond, en ik waardeer je opmerkingen altijd! Deze is een dagdroom en dwaalt wat rond. Ik zal over een uur nog een foto plaatsen van de Conasauga-watervallen. Nog een week… waar blijft de tijd? Ik wens je een prachtige dag! 🌹😙

  3. Oh my gosh what an amazing and heartwarming poem oh Master Poetic Photographer! And to add a little sauciness to your poetic charm, “I’m A Believer” by the Monkees is a wonderful throwback accent. Thanks so much for sharing a piece of your heart with us Phil. Enjoy the rest of your day my friend. 🌞🌺🤩✨🦋😁🎈
