Like a study for a stained glass window
she sits in passive stillness, watching him
take her photograph, this prying artist
who unthinkingly captures her spirit.
She lacks energy to protest. Instead,
she has withdrawn into a time and a place
where she can ignore his reality.
We are left to wonder what she might say
if her image could come to life and speak.
Once again, Thanks to Tess for her Mag 142, which sets our creative juices flowing.
