Sublime Vermeer

Delft the artist's birthplace
Deft the artist's hand
Pigments in a perfect blend
Each brush stroke carefully planned
Light through open windows
Illuminating space
Where girls immerse in music
Or turn to show a face
With lips that softly glisten
And hair with silken curl
Beneath a flowing headdress
Revealed a glowing pearl
A landscape under storm clouds
A street just caught in time
The mundane raised by artistry
By Vermeer made sublime.
