"Renoir Impressions" by estory

No longer real,
More like a dream,
A large vase of flowers
Picked yesterday,
Or the day before that,
When the sky cleared
After rain
And she walked
Through forget-me-nots
Or impatiens,
Around sunset,
With perhaps someone
Playing harpsichord music...


The young dancer,
Her hands the light
Between branches
Overhead, her feet
The flowers blooming
Across the stage,

Seems enchanted
By the light in the windowpane,
A face glimpsed in the audience,
Worlds away from here.

The book continues with Maps. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
In this little poem, I tried to capture the sense of impressionism that artists like Renoir created; a world neither quite here nor there, yesterday or today; a dream world of glimpses of moments that disappear as soon as they are experienced. An abstraction of experience, an emotion rather than action. estory
