A cosmos of emotion in a pair of eyes.
She drifted with breathless elegance.
Chiffon trailing
behind her.
Leather bound sandals,
supple against the severity
of the Middle-Eastern sun.
Slender hands—no rings,
but she trailed behind a man.
Strands of brown hair
peeked out of the scarf that veiled her head.
Before she neatly tucked it away.
In her burqa, she was a cloud of
blue-gray fabric.
She was a pair of dark eyes.
A lens of expression, heavily coated
in layers of kajal.
Murky pupils that played with light
like it was a little girl—a mere reflection of her parents .
When she smiled, you could not see
the delicate curvature of her mouth.
her eyes squinted into
two crescent moons.
Heavy as night, but with
the twinkle of each star.
A cosmos of emotion in a pair of eyes.
