The deep dimple in the chin,

the curve of a lip,

the dark lashes that offset

the eyes, the angle of a nose

and cheekbones —

it is remarkable how a few

variations make for so many

individual faces, that and an

ineffable quality that each

soul adds — faces are simply 

a marvelous work of art — 

take time to study those lines

and shadows, take time 

to really see people 

and appreciate each one 

as a unique and beautiful

  1. Beholding another one’s face
    Perhaps catching a glimpse of where one had been
    And seeing what one hopes to become
    One’s eyes will reveal much
    As they are truly the window to one’s soul
    Gaze deeply into them while eloquently listening
    Hold on to their words expressed and unspoken

    “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Les Miserables
