surprise

dreams long dormant
find their way to the surface
of my new reality
my smile is smug with certain joy
knowing you lifted the lid
of my pandora's box
to a flutter of life's confetti

"a flutter of life's confetti" ... I love it. Very tight poem. The first and last lines really work well in tandem.

an intriguing poem, the use of the adjective "smug" gives a wry twist to the poem!
