A Depiction Of One Artist And His Starry Night

Vincent Van Gogh~Starry Night __________________________ a precarious world of indecision a dark pallet of light this brilliant depiction , it does scream , it cries out blues and yellows swirl in a maze of defeat a crescent moon suspended in a blissful evening , hangs lone in agony I rest within this small town of hope my eyes are saddened , my mind relentless in delight You are mine , my asylum , my starry night a dimension of light under this wrenching canopy of demise oh Vincent... __________________________

    My favourite line is: "You are mine, my asylum, my starry night".... Capturing the wretched state of his tormented mind. Congrats on your win, Rick.

    Rick, you chose to describe my favourite painting! You gave the reader such an interesting glimpse into the mind of a brilliant yet disturbed artist. "A dimension of light under this wrenching canopy of demise" - I love that line! Congratulations on your win in my contest!
