She beckons agelessly

across her threshold palette -
crazed tiles of ochre, green and
umber as sunset in Paris
where flowers blaze reflections
on the sidewalk's sluice and
bolds her letters of seduction:
vins fins, vielles and proprietes.
The deep perspective of
her muted navy grey fa├žade
welcomes with eclectic joy
to blanc, rouge, rose and burgundy,
fanned gently

She bids come taste her art.

Context to Sheridan
Sheridan Kovacs is a very talented Canadian artist of eclectic variety. She gave me this acrylic painting of a Parisian Maison de Vins in return for help in baby-sitting her dogs! In this ekphrastic poem I see her through her  painting.
