You tried to catch my smile,
as if it were attainable,
and then ripple it through the sky
because it glittered...

You noted the sun never laughs
as much as we do.
Not even when the birds squabble
over the lushness of the leaves.

I said you should sit on the moon
and entertain the sun.
She'd be rolling around the horizon
in hysterics.

Because it's you my ivory feather,
who makes me smile.

    Grr... i hate you. You write well. Lol. Okay, i know you hate one liners but i honestly dont know what to say except you are very talented and this poem was truely exceptional. I mean it. I loved your vocabulary and the sophisticated way you arranged the words to make a true meaning out of them. This is a true piece of art and you are worthy of a 5/5 :)

    "You tried to catch my smile,

    Those lines really spoke to me, because they hold such a truth within them . I was reading this just yesturday but never bothered to comment XD I like how you ended it . It was sweet in a totally different way . It`s saying the same thing other poems say, only better and it was just so ... well written . I don`t have anything negative to say .

    This is really sweet, your poems are extremely different from other people's, but while others try to fit their poems to certain rules and guidelines, you just tell it as it is. and your poems are so beautiful like that, because they are so true, and full of feeling, 5/5
    i could say more, but then this would go on forevor so
    the end
