Wheatfield With Crows

Sinuous wheat stalks swelter and writhe in Auvers' July-dry heat:
a too-bright arid glittering, a delirious rippling of sizzling citrine.
Doom-dark crows convene to swoop and scavenge on turmoil's tempest
under indigo storm-swirled skies. A dead-end decision on a nowhere road;
his last-stand canvas smashed aside; a last stride into the smouldering gold.





*Vincent Van Gogh's 'Wheatfield With Crows' is believed to be his last painting

    I came back to read this again, and now realize just how fine a poem it is. You are the master of alteration, and again weaving in color... Jack

    One of Van Gogh's masterpieces! Your descriptions are breathtaking, Charlotte. Your poem picked me up and threw me right into the center of this painting - amidst the "sizzling citrine." Wonderful job. Congratulations on your win in my contest!

    I love this, Charlotte! If I am not mistaken, didn't VanGogh's sister n law promote this lovely piece of artwork? Not even famous until after he died. A real beauty--I was delighted to write my first ekphrasis for this contest....fun stuff! Thanks for your comments on my work. REally need help from you more experienced poets with more detailed critiques upon occasion. :) Thanks for yours. Gwendolen

    Smile ~ “Sweeet Charlotte.” ~ I do love the style and somewhat uniqueness of “Your Beauties” wonderful poetry my dear ~ Tis comparitive as unto a painting by say, Vincent himself; allowing the reader to gaze upon the colours and the scenes for a moment of falling into its canvases eyes ~ Thanks for stopping by my dear; very kind ~ “My Love to 'You Always, & All You Love,'" John!:) ~
