the enigmatic smile so proclaimed

Image:  Modern Day Mona Lisa   (here)

the enigmatic smile so proclaimed
so captivatingly to many for centuries
the fascination of a kind so sustained
extending it to the male species 

yearnings for all the pleasures to find
what could be so specific to accentuate
a hold on the natural inquisitive mind
that a Mona wannabe could equate

all the thoughts of times erstwhile
such was the magic of da Vinci
that one succumbed just to a smile
to showcase a mortal's ingenuity

  2. She does have an enigmatic smile..........would love to know what she was thinking. Nice one, Hank.

  3. Good one Hank. A smile can transcend time and space and you’ve crafted this really well!

  4. One smile and you instantly want to know the thoughts
