Smiling – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

dVerse Poets – Quadrille – Freckle





He’d dated,
of course he had,
and there’d been plenty of fun,
but he was smitten with Red
who was veiled in fire and
painted with freckled star-scapes,
whose hororscope said
confetti could shower you today,
a serious young woman
whose eyes were smiling.

    Paul, I believe freckles are placed to allow us mere humans to gaze on perfect skin. Alabaster skin is almost too gorgeous to look upon. Your poem reminded me of this. Thank you for sharing

  5. Loved this one Paul. The words and the image capturing the mood and beauty of his thoughts. Then again I’m abit bias as I married a red head.
