loosening brush strokes

Delighted to have this poem included in The Haiku Foundation's weekly Haiku Dialogue: Finding Peace and Contemplation in quiet spaces...a gallery. The prompt for this invitation included a photo of a gallery at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Massachusetts which is affiliated with the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art where I received my MA. One of Edouard Manet's still life paintings completed just months before he died is part of the Clark collection--Moss Roses in a Vase--and it inspired this poem:
