That Face

It looks so familiar
I know this one quite well
That high forehead with three lines
That aquiline chiseled nose
Those high cheekbones covering
Rounded cheeks indented by laughter
Those small  ears with tiny earlobes
Dangling pearl drop earrings with gold
Studded diamonds twinkling on the sides
Eyebrows that are not bushy, just right
Curling eyelashes circling dark eyes
A bit slanted yet big enough full of mirth
Lips that pout not and are neither thin nor full
Sitting atop a very determined chin minus dimple
Short dark hair capping a normal head over
An average long face over an average neck
This face looks so very familiar
This is my face in the mirror
No wonder it looked so familiar
My eyes open
I was daydreaming !!!

Some will not recognize the truthfulness of my mirror. Let them remember that I am not here to reflect the
surface… but must penetrate inside. My mirror probes down to the heart. I write words on the forehead
and around the corners of the mouth. My human faces are truer than the real ones.
Paul Klee
1879-1940, Swiss Artist


Beauty is truth’s smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.
Rabindranath Tagore
