Persisting sadness
Fills hollow spaces
In my expanding heart

Why does grief knockdown
Carefully cultivated partitions
After thought out rearrangements

Expansive smile accompanying
Inner joy shining through guileless
Eyes of a greenhorn child

Sober dourness does not become
Me as I vainly try to gain purchase of slyly
Slipping aplomb from my sweaty palms

Askew (ed) view
Needs new review
Another rearrangement of heart~
