* For Jessica Alba ... and the splendor of her smile. *

Oh, the enigma of her face ...
    Its melting mysteries and moody veneers
     When sad, like a brumal, aching, mist-muddled beach
    Wild tresses framing it like surf-swept seaweed
Sandy spindrift, left by her squall ...

     Then, the smaze lifts ...
 The irises spark like dark fire opals
Glistening as the wild wash of the Milky Way
 Her smile blooms forth - a dazzling midday meadow
     Splashed thick with heather and promise ...

Oh, and all the mad magic ...
    The cinematic surprises from there-to-here
     Rages of rouge, bawdy blushes, and pale complexions, moony
    The multitude of transitions and tones - all divine ...
And all ... my undoing.

A fan of Miss Alba, are you? ... Just kidding. She certainly has an alluring quality which you have aptly described here, Greg. Congratulations on your win. Regards, Su. PS I used to religiously watch M*A*S*H just to get a glimpse of her almost namesake, Allan Alda, even though the Korean war did not interest me.

Oh, thank you so much, Suzette - I am a fan of smiles, and hers is particularly enticing. I love MASH myself and have it all on DVD - Alan Alda is brilliant! Blessings, friend! :o) <3
