untold story


what was it that enticed me about this pic?

a color i find gawdy
soothing it seemed
serenity and mystery
beauty partially revealed
maybe 'twas the mischief
or the suppressed twinkle
the smiling eyes
or the concealed dimple
defying the norms
without defying any
she beheld an untold story
which was best untold

Wonderful poem, and oh! that mysterious smile! :)

On a serious note:
"or the concealed dimple
defying the norms
without defying any"
True. Unfortunately, not only in middle east.
