A Lamp, Or A Smile?

Day nine of the #NaPoWriMo prompt was once again too interesting to be ignored simply due to a self imagined lack of poetic vein. NaPoWriMo prompt said: "Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a “concrete” poem – a poem in which the lines and words are organized to take a shape that reflects in some way the theme of the poem."

So, here I present to you, my concrete poetry: about something that brings light in the lives of all of us!


A
simile.
Moonlight,
 white wonder 
cast upon a sheet of dark grey night.
Shimmering, glittering, binding all beings- 
a wondrous spell, bathed in soothing
dreams of hope and light.
Compare.
To?
A smile.
Carefree.
Infectious.
Hopeful.
Joyous.
Bright,
as a beam
of sunlight.
As you look at the smile,
forget not: to check
if they reached the eyes.

Hope you liked it! You can drop me feedback in the comments below. And hey, I'm still working on that poetry angle, excuse me!
