A child smiles
Joy shared through her sparkling eyes
Joy returned through mine

Note: This poem was inspired and written today after a chance meeting between a very little girl and I while waiting in line at the grocery store. I turn around and was met with the smile of a small girl with sparkling eyes like diamonds in the sun. Her joy was so intense that one could feel it in the air. I returned her smile with a silly face and big smile. When I left the store, I turned around to see her one last time and waved and smiled and she returned it with a wave of joy directed my way. I wrote 2 or 3 versions before deciding on this one which I published for the first time on my blog today, the 9th of April 2018.
