Look

         tones
of
      blue,yellow
      and
      red
             on
black
          her eyes
a
     novelette
                     unread
a 
  look 
                of
                   youth
                    unfazed
        
        our
        past
recalled                in
                    another's
gaze

inspired by Vermeer's The 
Girl with a Pearl earring

    I"ve yet to see the movie of this theme, though I think I have the recording of it somewhere in my house. I love how romantically you were inspired by this well known painting!!
