Painted Pictures Hung Upon the Wall

A Poem inspired by a trip to the North Carolina Museum of Art
Pictures from the NCMA (http://ncartmuseum.org) website

Painted pictures hung upon the wall…
Frozen moments stilled upon the canvas…
Rendered so to hold us enthralled.
From a long ago fading past,
Cracking pigments of depth and richness…
In each ephemeral face a story unfolds
From eyes that follow you where ‘ere you pass…
Eyes look back… looking into the soul…
From painted pictures hung upon the wall.
Like doorways rendered to another place and time…
Do their stories play out when we’re not looking
At painted pictures hung upon the wall?
