Poetry Month – April 10

When I wrote the prompt ‘Her Smile’ on the index card, I wasn’t thinking of Mona Lisa. I was thinking of romance, of love, of that sweetness which connects us to the human heart. But perhaps that’s why we connect so deeply to Da Vinci’s painting. It is all of it.  I decided to put it in a cinquain (2-4-6-8-2) because why not? And yes, you will have to allow me ‘smile’ as a one syllable word.

Her smile
Follows you, us
Around the gallery

She is
Mother, Lover
Sister, Friend or Something
yet to be discovered inside
Your heart
