Dona’s Smile

(Peace Project-  my digital music composition)
Dona’s Smile
Dona braves strange lands
with quiet dignity and friendly warmth.
She’s a fast learner, observing first
political arrangements and hierarchical forms
that govern the local landscapes
where she lives and works.
Then, with the ease of a seasoned traveler,
she maps out her self-determined way.
Dona has the adaptive nature of a chameleon,
and the instinctive wisdom of a bird of prey.
Her calming voice reveals the patience
and charms of a purring cat.
What is the secret in her wide, knowing smile?
She’s just passing through, as are we all.
