Life is good! Life is inspirational!

The Fresher’s Welcome

They come!
They gather!
They smile!

They smile in incongruous exaggeration
Smile to elicit a favour
Smile to break the moment

The moment of upturned corners
Gracing the world with a social smile
Disguising a stressed face

A stressed face mimicking; impersonating another
Testing for the genuine until
It melts into the Duchenne

The Duchenne smile of all smiles
Real; warm; eye crunching
Dopamine in a face

In a face that draws each to the other
Elicits the power of friendship
Summons past that icebreaking beginning

And then …..
Then they drink!
