Nose crinkling
Mouth twitching
Pouring out smiles
With twinkling eyes
A burst of laughter
Echoing for long after


A wave of glitter
Million butterflies flitter
Hiccups double fold
Stars of diamond and gold
Sunset with moonrise
Thrilling rainbow slides
Whirl like a sufi
Hold your first trophy
Floating in the warm sea
Taking me back to me

A presence undeniable
Powerful yet subtle
Grace of the Creator
Flowing through a child’s laughter
