The Question[s]…

Why does Sunlight sparkle in water?
How does one create sparkling conversation?
A smile can sparkle, and the whiteness of your teeth has little to do with it.
Will I recognize the sparkle of an original thought when I have one?
Moments can sparkle.
Is the sparkle in someone’s eyes the soul?
Sometimes a headache sparkles; someone’s knocking at the door…
Is my life atomic fallout, explosive TNT or the bright searing light of a Sparkler?
Gems sparkle.
If I take out the trash will my words sparkle?

METTLE (a wishful fantasy)

Fierce winds and rain could batter down the door;
But this bending tree straightens up once more.
Bad heat might burn and blister human skin.
A tree’s bark’s brittle, but its tough as sin.
Temperatures cool in the dance of autumn.
Trees “cowboy up” dropping leaves so awesome.
Snow and ice sometimes kills a rugged soul.
A smart tree sleeps [instead] to dream’s the goal.
Spring, the season, an alarm clock ringing;
And some trees wake up with their buds blooming.
