Peaches in Istanbul

When asked, the artist replies
she painted the still life
from memory
that yes, she was in Istanbul
that yes, the peaches were sweet.
The ripe and tawny colors
clustered against misted shadows
beckon....
I cannot afford her vibrant canvas ...
but find that peaches in the market stall
are affordable
irresistible
and yes,
luscious.
