The Smile Lived İn The Shadow Of Its Edges


like a tender curve the silent lips parted
they pushed the horizons back to the ranges
from which the sight of all goodness started
a long long time ago
so long that no one will ever know

the smiled talked in the shadow of its will
to the trees and roots that stood cursed and still
by water running deep and floods spreading wide
the smile took them all to quench the shadow's side

and this is why the land stood dry
equally fragile in a smiling spot
it was the sun that smiled at the smile
and it was the water smile never forgot
