lyrics

Rainbow In A Smile (Davis/Coleman)

The healing touch of a word
A volume in a syllable of silence
Life in a breath of stillness
A journey in a pause
A symphony in a single note
Poetry in a brush stroke
Joy in a moment of intimacy
And tears that just take us by surprise
Like a rainbow in a smile
A rainbow in a smile
Takes me by surprise

Holy beating drum
With songs that only you can strum
Blinding blooms of our poetry
Sprout without a single word
An ocean in a pot of tea
It took a long time to realize that for me
But now at the closing of play
Those little things are taking me away
Like a rainbow in a smile
A rainbow in a smile
A rainbow in a smile

from “Little things, living springs” – Noel Davis
Together at the Edge 2011 p155
