The past is holding me in place. The present sets me free. The distant future’s smiling face Lies past this tulip tree And past the trunk of this great oak With distance calling me. Live that future. It's today Returning smiles the future gave.

My smile this week comes from having the opportunity to write this poem. Also linked to dVerse Quadrille where Merril is hosting with the word “set”.
A freckly face does not disgrace The simple beauty of her eyes, Two stars who watch the midnight skies, Two candles blinking warm replies, Two windows opening a door No one noticed there before. Observe. Let beauty emphasize How tiny freckles frame her eyes.
Up and down, round and round, See the wonders on the ground, Soaring beauty full of sky, Full of gratitude and I Will praise the truthfulness of light Seeking dawn through darker night When evening coolness hints of love Up and down, beyond above.
