Shadow of your Smile

Such a clear, reedy voice,
so light and graceful, caressed the soft haze of that autumn moonlight ….
the sound of innocence.
How can the simplicity of a child be heard
amidst the clamour and harangue of the city ?
Only when joy and sadness flit unseen amongst the shadows of our smiles.

San Juan, Puerto Rico 2006
