ON VINCENT VAN GOGH

 Your paintings

A cauldron of emotions

An active volcano

Smoldering amidst other

Great masterpieces

Fuming lava

Seething to gush

Intense inner turmoil onto

Canvases in a myriad of hues

Strong, light tones, all

Arrayed in a coherent whole

Giving credence to a sense in the nonsense

A feeling of awe n reverence permeates my soul

Breathless in wonder I behold the sheer

Magic n mastery of Van Gogh

Wielding his brushes and palette

Putting into shade contemporaries

Paling them into insignificance

Whilst he carried on oblivious

To all except his magnificent

Obsessions.

 Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.

Vincent Van Gogh
1853-1890, Dutch Painter
