For the visually challenged writer, the painting shows a woman sitting at a table in a restaurant or diner. A man is sitting at an adjacent table and seems to be staring at her.
Early morning, she waits for her breakfast order,
Illuminated by sunlight.
The man opposite is looking at the young couple
at the table opposite her, holding hands across the table.
They lean in for a kiss.
He is watching people stroll by the large window.
The young lady in the blue dress sees none of this,
she appears to be lost in thought.
He watches as a young girl loses her glove,
no one noticing.
A cheeky young chap waves, as he passes with his mother.
instinct made him lift his hand to wave back.
All the time wondering why the young lady,
Lost in thought, takes no notice of the life around her…
