Happy Haiga Day!

A poem that was written in response to a painting. It can stand alone without the original inspiration piece and so I have illustrated it for today.

En plein air was not
a phrase she would have
heard, but instinctually
she knew the galaxies of blue
required painting from life.

She waited through fall,
and winter, for April to
arrive so that the blues
could flow through her fingers
and be confined to canvas.
