A Smile Defies Gravity #poetry

smileSomeday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

If I were free of life’s daily trials
I would rein in the mouth of the wind
riding over clouds and sun’s rays
I would race comet’s tails
If I could hold water in my hand
I would sculpt the waves
swim with dolphins and whales
pirouette on the shifting sands
If I like the moon could move tides
I would give joy a sail
let love’s torch light child, woman man

never allow frowns only smiles

Gravity’s face
unleash severity’s pull
frown into a smile
Thankful for the folks at Poet’s United who each week look for  ways to inspire our creativity. Today’s prompt is (as Im sure you guessed) Gravity.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Gravity’s face
    unleash severity’s pull
    frown into a smile

    One can never thank enough the power and function governing gravity. We can see its effects when astronauts float in their spaceships – very unsettling without it! Great lines Moonie!



  2. I love that quote. But I think I like your poem even more! To animate the wind and ride her and then race and scoop … oh, fantasy! But when you get to the tides and to the smile, I know that in our human way we can, we can, turn frowns to smiles. And by the way, that dog smiles BIG. (Our next midweek motif is animation.)
