Qualifying Features (Featuring Qualities)

Indecision is endearing

when it is a stubble vacillating

between civility and wilderness.

Rigidity is timelessly modern

when it is a nose aquiline,

cutting a line

so fine, it hurts.

Fluttering flightiness has quiet beauty

when bequeathed on eyes- liquid,

still pools, bejeweled with

lashes, long and startlingly black.

Languidness is sharp and snappy

when it’s about legs ,

lazily crossed,

bewitching, in a manner unconscious.

Glitter has depth

when it’s about an iris-

bright, soft and lively.

Unruliness is studiously orderly

when it’s about curls-

individualistic, erratic

and thoroughly haphazard.

Sudden volte-faces still evoke admiration

when they’re about eyebrows,

cutting lines oblique,

steep and sloping.

Qualities and features

do seem at odds, don’t they?

P.S: I owe the first few lines to a pic on fb
