Renoir’s Intriguing Lady

Auguste Renoir Odalisque 1870, oil on canvas


Eyes piercing, flash gray
Lips, on the cusp of a smile
With secrets to tell.

For TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge: Choose a painting or sculpture for this week’s prompt. Recently while visiting the National Gallery of Art, I happened upon this painting by Renoir.

Once she had captivated me, I couldn’t look away. I imagined that she had quite a story to tell, but alas, she lounges suspended in colorful oil paint daubs on canvas for eternity intriguing passersby like me.
