On “Vermeers Hat”


there is a line in the book

by Timothy Brook

where he writes

“Vermeer stayed home,

and painted what he saw”

the sign of a great artist

to reveal what is seen

where their eyes are

whether at home

where their heart is

or a wanderer

to the less known

yet no less lovely

the great artists reveal

what treasure holds their heart

wherever their home

sharing what they see

with we who see it not

or different

laying their heart and eye

as gentle veneer

on that before them
