At first flashes of lightning

Out of the blue skies of illusions

An intriguing face of a woman


The artist in his inflamed

Romantic state

Created a canvas with a face

That was part of her as a young


With added features of his most

Important Muse

No doubt?

Perhaps it would hardly matter

As sun and moon stood still.

His art accepted by her

For its colourful composition

She grew strongly on him as

A woman

For a year or two

With more portraits showing

Her personality.

Finally the magic constellation

Of the stars changed entirely

But she still watched over him

Rather like a sister.

An aunt.

A woman who experienced

A difficult phase in her life.

Now the time’s right

He thought

To present her portrait

True to life

At the high-point in her


Professional existence.

In a way the artist’s portrait

Unusually to his style

Went beyond it.

This time.
