rainy day woman

I stood outside a small intimate Art Studio in Roseville, waiting to meet a friend to share a meal and movie.
A painting in the window, caught my imagination.
I hope these words capture the beauty and mystery of my experience.

rainy day woman

oil paint drizzles
down a canvas
raining over
brushed collaged skin
nuanced buff pink

a softly curving body
lies naked across a bed
a sacred text

orange cushions
luxuriate around her

chin rests on bent arm
fingers pensively
touch a lower lip

hold her mystery
