V. Van Gogh - Poem by JOE POEWHIT

Vincent, I've seen you.
Manaic raptured hue.
Cosmic energy heart,
with a love so true.
Only you could paint blue.
Making it real, like you.
Anguished passions on brush.
Colors put to your trust.
A sunflower were you.
Painting with a golden cue.

    This poem has a serene feel to it. I really enjoyed how you made the lines work -so well, to bring out a clear picture with flowing verse. Good substance, good feel. Keith (Report)Reply

    i had a good vision on an expressionism portrait: the street was painted blue beside a blue door, it meant that the street was shining because of the rain on the floor mirroring the colour: proof: the terrace was empty
    cqfd, i was proud that day you know!

    Hello Joseph, You offered us very expressive poems, you have once again reminded me its sunflower. From which we until then accept divine energy...
    Best wishes,
    Tsira
