This is "The Authoress," another of my collages. It was the inspiration for this Chinese Koan, an old form that requires the following lines:
first line - Make a statement about the subject.
second line - Enhance the statement with a descriptive element.
third line - Make a statement seemingly unrelated to the subject.
fourth line - Tie the third line to the original subject.

She often sits in a chair of green velvet,
scrapbooks and mementos scattered at her feet.
Drifting snow doesn't fall here often,
but her windows are whitened by faint reminiscence.
