Captured Beauty: Her Face
Just for a moment, the fleeting
instant, when the rarest of events
occurs. She passes, and the mind
captured amidst all manner of
activity; her beauty.
Does she notice her impact upon
those watching, when today we
must shun all manner of appreciation
of the same.
Must she seek loves beauty in verse
or rhyme, when some find solace in
her whispered name.
When the movement of light played
across her face, touching her lips,
and down, then across her chin;
many the wounded heart goes when
the scene is replayed in the mind
again and again.
The foundation of beauty begins with
the jaw hinge, it carries the ramus-
which is the rearmost part of the jaw.
This bony structure is the place
where beauty ties the face, framing
and defining face structure, is often
observed being kissed by the neck.
The dental plate and the chin mound
accentuate beauty. Whether he or
she, sweet morsels seem to drop into
Beauty defines, yet, the dental ridge
and teeth are backgrounds that
establish the overall appearance.
Then, the skin.
Matters not, if hued, pale, dimpled,
narrow, full, loose, scarred, smooth,
finely haired, or tightened.
The effect is what feeds the mind in
he or she as they view each other,
establishing the basis for pleasure,
for the duration of memory, and
recall of the viewed.
Mind locks upon the moment to recall
with delight that brief pause, locking
away details, as the mind replays the
scene in fractionated snippets, so that
frame by frame her beauty, his
handsome features become
inescapable from the mind.
Where else but in human minds will
the very snippets of our daily
experiences form into a historical
newsreel and rewind for us visually
again and in time again.
What determination makes we as
viewers appreciate the gentle
curvature of chin to neck?
What establishes the focus of eye
to that part of the body, when so
much is ado about other parts?
Simply put, the eye that captures
a particular spot of beauty away
from the norm appreciates the gift
of the person as a basis of who
they are, or at least in fairness,
possess the potential to become.
Matters not as acquainted, as
friends, as intimate friends, or as
romantically involved. To the
passersby on the street, or a dip
and a nod to the co-worker who
chances by – all note things of
beauty from each other.
Only the viewer may or may not
be aware of how much they have
garnered in capturing anothers
