Happy

Her smile is wider than her head

A photo shows this when she was ten

Her brilliant eyes then shone so bright

Her teeth gleaming in black and white

And still after many colourful years

When distant childhood memories may bring on tears

She has that smile as wide today

What might spark it I cannot say

But it reveals like an evening primrose bloom

A late afternoon sunburst that fills the room.
