Lilacs, Grey Weather,
Monet, 1872


 
 
the day wore grey-
hemmed with
shadows
lilac, or

efflorescence-

i saw her face
lit-
-un-
lit-
an elfin chiaroscuro-

the paint dried on my palette

  1. Oh wow, this is wonderful. The second half is my favorite:

    “i saw her face

    I love that her beauty was so breathtaking that you couldn’t even paint her. You watched her so intently that your paint dried up. Fantastic closing line. Excellent work.
