Day 122: Young Woman on a Balcony, 17th Century Gerrit Dou

She Looks Out

She looks out each day from her balcony
the same time every day and imagines
monsters devastating the countryside
knights rescuing fair maidens
magical beings bestowing gifts upon the good
and when the vision ends
she returns inside to scrub stone floors

  1. Oh the lives we live in our imaginations. So much more glorious than the ones we muddle through each day. I really like this one.
