The Faintest Grin

Apr 08

Watching closely,
Smile cropped from homeless
Zooming in,
I’d like to see,
The faintest grin.
Will I see it,
Lips get thin,
Will I see,
Eyes cropped from homeless
A smile from him?
Eyebrows raised,
Eyes get wide,
I sense there is,
Some joy inside.
Smile cropped from homeless
That wasn’t it,
He held his frown,
His only smile,
Is upside down!


Have you ever had to work with someone with little or no sense of humor? Making them smile is a major effort. Have you ever found that checkout person at the grocery store looking way less than happy?

Do you ever try to get them to smile just to see if you can do it? That’s the nice thing about a smile. If you see someone without one you can give them one of yours. How do you get someone to smile? How do they get you to smile?

By the way, that’s kind of a freaky edit job on that stock image isn’t it?



  1. This website was… how do I say it? Relevant!!
    Finally I have found something which helped me. Cheers!

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Thank you!

  3. Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this board and I
    find It truly useful & it helped me out a lot.
    I hope to give something back and help others like you aided me.

  4. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are
    not already 😉 Cheers!

  5. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
