Smiles Are Contagious
Happiness comes slipping through seams
in the reality of each waking day.
Its arrival is often forecast in dreams,
in a subliminal and misconceived way.
Receptors are constantly being tuned
to dial in to the joy and the mirth.
Pity the minds permanently sadness cocooned
who haven’t experienced enlightenment’s birth.
Wake up each morning and make it your mission
to pick the good out of the fabric of living.
Fight off the sorrow and beams of derision
lurking in the shadows of mistrust and misgiving.
Don’t hide your smile, in fact give it away
to the first person you happen to meet.
The positivity in your eyes may brighten their day
and there’ll be two people tasting the sweet.
