Where is your smile?

A response to the ones who ask, “Where is your smile?” 

My smile was in my body after morning yoga.  My smile was in my voice as I lead  a sacred song circle in the forest.

My smile was in the voices of those I sang with. My smile was in the arms of those I share community with.  My smile was in the faces of those I photographed.

My smile was behind a screen, pleased with the art I had created.  My smile was in my shoulders as I sat tall through business meetings and tasks my future self will thank me for.

My smile was in my ears and mind as I observed non judgementally and gathered data. My smile was in my bare feet as I walked through forest paths and city streets.

My smile was in the pure water of life I carried home. My smile was in the moon as it shined down upon my bare skin.

My smile was in the goose bumps arising from wind chill and rain. My smile was in the sun as it starts my day again.
