Painted Faces


Three ladies in miniature

sitting together

in a glass cabinet

filled with treasures

sparkling under the electric light

waiting now…

as they most likely waited then

while an artist created the selfie of their time

I wonder what they were thinking then

and what they would think now

if they could see through their painted eyes

the world as it is

would they share their thoughts or hold them close

hidden within

as their expressions remain poised to be painted?


“Where shall we three meet again in thunder, lightning, or in rain?

When the hurlyburly’s done, when the battle’s lost and won.”

― William Shakespeare, Macbeth
