A drawbridge,a yellow carriage
ground a glaring orange,grass
so very green,sky and water blue
in a frame of gold.Peach,plum and apricot
my orchard passion cannot last.As if
in a dream I must paint The a 
starry night,the cypresses over 
a field of corn.Great sunflowers in a 
symphony of yellow,blue fields as far
as the eye can see.As if in a dream
Van G’s Letters to his brother
We painters sail alone in
our wretched little craft on the
great billows of our age.An age
of development or decay?
We cannot judge!
Contemporary events assume
exaggerated proportions
to our eyes whether to our
advantage ,or not, and yet
that intangible thrills us to the core
in our search for conception.
Van G’s Letters to his brother

*A Phrasis is a structured verse where the poet uses selected prose phrases of another writer’s(not a poet)  to compile  unique poetry therefrom as a tribute thereto,the word phrasis is Greek for phrase.

Listen to me read these phrasis of mine on youtube under the name ichthyschiro
