Kumud Ranjan

Rookie (8th July / India)

And....Tears smiled

the sun was very hot
A kid of four was playing outside
She jumped and fell down
Injured she was, cried
Tears streamed on her soft face

Her father came, picked her up
Consoled, offered a candy and said
“You rocked! You hurt the ground! ”
Her face shone in happiness, felt pride
She stopped crying... and tears smiled

    short to the point but no part of it can be said to be simple. this is a sweet tenerly thought out poem that is well written and wonderfully expressed in so few words. it teaches us all it doesn't take many elaborate words to touch someones heart through a poem. i can honestly say this poem touched me very deeply and brought back sweet memeories of my childhood and my father's determination to pick me up and kiss away my scrapes and bruises and encourage me to be strong and try again. this is going into my favorites definately. you are a wonderfull poet Kumud and i look forward to continuing to read your work. deserves nothing less than a 10++++++++, my friend.
