Mischeif and longing

An expression to turn Mona Lisa green with envy!

A labyrinthine riddle of a face.

What maelstrom of thoughts created such a moment

So briefly set in time?

What comment or happenstance drew such mischief?

Or longing?

Those eyes that glow with intense recognition. I know you. I know your thoughts.

Those eyes that make me boy again, caught gazing at beautiful ladies.

This beautiful lady, smiling away the centuries

Yet as real and present as if the paint was still wet.
