Magpie 17 Stoney Faced

Call me old but
I like my women
with chiselled features,
mouths wide open with laughter
and love.

I like my women
with sandblasted cheeks
eyes alive with excitement
and anticipation.



I like my women
with blond(ish) hair
broad foreheads
full of knowledge
and stories.

Call me old but
I like my women
au natural and botex free
with laughter lines and
lively eyebrows
and maybe even a hint of gray.

I love your Magpie Steve. I also think that a face with the map of their lives written on them .. add beauty & character to a person. I would love to know who it was that decided age was ugly because I see it quite differently myself.
Aging gracefully is what I will be doing! No bacterial injections or unnecessary slicing of the knife for me. But I guess it's a case of 'each to their own' ... hope you had a great weekend!

I hope this Magpie speaks volumes about its author. If so, you are a wise and wonderful man! Real beauty never lies in the perfect body, face or hair but always in the soul. This is a fantastic Magpie!
