A SECRET SMILE

What do you see?

when you look with care?

dark tresses on either side.




I’m comfortable on canvas

a watcher from within

inside a room without a name.

 

Behind me, there’s paradise

a rich landscape

I cannot escape from.

 

What am I smiling about?

I shall not tell you.

use your mind.

 

Maybe I have taken a lover

or I am with child

it might be neither.

 

Questions for the centuries

I’ll sit back and wait

while you decide.
