Chiaroscuro


I’ve seen faces pictured 
half in shadow and half in light,
mysterious,
ominous, 
unsettling,

though not half as menacing as
certain faces I see in real life, 
warm, 
smiling, 
inviting,
but on which, in the full light of day, 
you can’t see 
the mind.

    This makes the thinker think, so thanks for the think, you thoughtful thinker.

    Your second stanza makes me think of smiling poker faces and cut-throat business dealers :)
