Sheer Perfection in Gloss

The corners of her mouth upturned
Gentle creases of a soft, friendly smile in the making
Solely productive
But the single mental capture that will last through 31 moons, or more
Slowly forgetting
but all the same, sweetly remembering
As the human mind often tricks and trembles
A somber photographic capture
A glimmer of hope illustrious wonder behind bright eyes
Fading, yet promising a forever glow
A forever know
A forever recognize-and-turn-the-page
Warming sensation spreading outward from your core
to your trembling fingertips
Gracing only the most aesthetic scraps in a book
Bent edges encircling an angelic face
a captured glance
a 1-2-3-and-say-cheese
Gracing your pocketbook, thoughtfully placed
between the constantly-used charge card
and the envy green wad of cash
The corners of her mouth upturned
Gentle creases of a soft, friendly smile
in the making
An ounce of perfection–caught, stolen
An aura of perfection, never ever lost

The corners of her mouth upturned,

perfection.
