The Beautiful Smile:

Not testament to where we have been,
or symbol of triumphal victory;

But a sign of the vision
of where it is we are headed,
and of the Spirit that will take us there.

The sign is shared, person to person,
and many who follow its leading
know of its meaning:

It speaks a knowledge of
inner peace, reconciliation, resolution.

And, above all, a future hope.

Like sunshine through the mist,
this human rainbow -
fragmented and reflected,
shared between a myriad of faces -

Says that All Will Be Well.

These are awe inspiring words. Kate you just have it! That magical 'it' that allows words to flow from you like a bubbling brook. Thanks special lady.
Love Chanti

Yes, "all will be well". We tend to forget that all rests ultimately in His hands. You took me back to a special place with this poem...a clearing within a thick forest, almost a perfect circle, where light streamed down from the heavens. It was a sacred place, nature's cathedral, and I was at peace there. A comforting testament to faith, Kate...Thank you

Que sera, sera.

Yup, peace beyond all understanding.

So true only the jews and christians will ever understand this.
Or what life really is.

Bravo Kate. (throws roses on the stage)

You have spoken like a true poet and covered your subject so cleverly. I believe a smile is one thing that is so under-rated. When we smile we convey so much that it is infectous and words are often not needed at all. Great write///Kate.
