Against marble column
a woman stands
her arm leaning
Nausicaa was

but her dress
does nt say it
dark brown top
above the waist
reveals transparent white

she is tall
her black hair
peaks to view
wistful eyes
watching who

tilted head to right
she has him
in sight
feet peasant bare
you stood there

she found
on a beach
love is there

stand you silent
legend myth or true
unlike a princess
you appear
you are here

painting holds you
as they do
caught in time
a peasant princess
with searching eyes
