Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #20
“Smile” In C rhyme line
The place is dim and filled with haze
Same weary souls await last call.
One last shot just before they crawl
Home to nothing, the same always.
Another day in sad malaise!
Then a women’s voice in the aisle
Waking souls with her joyful smile.
What difference a moment makes,
A single song is all it takes
To change the mood once with her style.
