Poet's Notes

A poem in honor of a renaissance woman painter named Sofonisba Anguissola. I appreciate so much her great work.

In stillness of her spirit she sits there
with all her prowess she manipulates.
Her fingers’  ripples in coldest water
replenish  mind and soul that ruminates.
Playing in nocturne, she’s  being witnessed
by her governess . The simplicity...
Her portraits that adduce virtues she possessed -
laconic and clear view of chastity.
Oh, renaissance woman,  you shine on top,
as you incandesce in  mind  love of arts!
You’re a czar bringing our decorum up-
women’s pride… imbue modesty in heart.
In the silence of our heart, we listen
in these memorabilia… you remain.

    this is lovely, Leonora. It feels like it was written for the contest on the artist. Oh my gosh, I just looked up and saw it WAS for that artist. I really have to check out this woman and try one myself.
