A Smile at Dawn

Form: Pentastich

In those early hours of dawn
When sunlight barely shines
And crystal tears of dew sparkle
On tender lawns and lashes
It’s then I gaze on your smile.
The smile that beguiles my eyes
And lifts my heart from sorrow
A gentle ray of wonder
That breaks the solemn darkness
And gives my soul its hope.
You smile through my fears
While awakening the ache
The endless yearning to feel you close
Recall the gentle embrace of love
All caught in my gaze.
