Girl Standing by an Open Window
Reading a letter
Looking onto sunlit streetsOf Delft.
For she is serious.
No lover's smile upon her lips.
Does he write he cannot meet her?
Maybe he does not love her.Whatever it is
Vermeer does not say.
He was more interested
In light and shade
His sensuous colours
luminosity of paint
than the contents of a letter.
Joe Hennessy builds Walara, a sheep statiion for his family in the harsh environment of the Gascoyne district of Western Australia.
