IDOL/ Poetry Potluck #25


Johannes Vermeer   1632- 1675


Searching for an Idol, a Role Model, a Mentor.  A choice for Poetry Potluck #25....I place very few on a pedestal, but great art is always at the top.  GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING...Everything!
A Haiku seems like a simple toast!!  Other entries can be found..please look for them.


IDOL

Vermeer paints the girl.
A brush dips into splendor.
Glory to the soul.
