The beauty queen

Wears her smile

Like a jewel

As she sashays on the shore

Of many a heart

Among waves of praise



My word group: waves, jewels, shore, queen

  2. All a performance perhaps..but I wonder who is the performer and who is being played..The beauty queen or the audience?

  3. There is such sweetness in the smile. Especially worn by the shore, somehow it makes the beauty queen so free.

  4. Beauty queens, for sure, are like that, maybe not all but majority of them. I still prefer my beauty queen to be a real one, though. Not overly nor exaggeratedly perfect. Smiles.

  11. Indeed! Her smile is a jewel to wear, but hopefully not to store until the next public show.

  17. A smile, when sincere, can be a shining jewel. If it is fake, then what follows may not be what you hoped for. I loved the imagery that came with this, Sumana. Very well done :)

  22. Love the use of the word "shore" and "waves" in this. Lovely tongue-in-cheek "conquering" with her jewel smile.

  23. A second 'sashay' yay. It must be hard to keep a perpetual smile.

  24. great job with the word list! i could never have been brave enough to put myself out there like that for everyone to judge!

  25. A smile must be shown even if the kingdom is falling.

  26. A smile triggered by praise. I suppose that's a normal reaction, though I prefer a genuine smile triggered by warmth and inner joy.

  27. Very clever and beautifully effective metaphor you've woven throughout.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You employed your word group very well to tell the tale.

  29. Sumana,

    Enjoying that brief moment of feeling on top of the world, especially if the location is also a place of natural beauty!
