Princess Haiku and Raoul Dufy engaged in a spirited conversation about why "blue is not a color but a mystery"

Princess Haiku realized that she had been gone far longer than she intended. I was visiting Dufey she explained and you know how that is; time pauses, becomes remarkably blue and then vanishes. It isn't as though I could interrupt his conversation. Once he is started on the Fauves.... the color elongates, becomes prism clear and the mind opens into a startling silence of ocean.

Princess Haiku, he told me surely you can learn to "reconcile the natural grace of irrepressible fantasy" with the normal activities of daily life.
