like a dying flame
            looking down
from
a 
fired coloured
                      sky
a visionary
    in his earthly
                        life

mysterious
in every detail
          tempetuous
and yet
subjective

a lonely genius
mused
     by fierce 
           inspirations
                tearing
imaginations asunder

visions
     of paradise
     in near
        abstracted clouds
                               of colour
delicate
detailed
      often sombre
the spirit
of a willing mind

writing
       designing
             engraving
printing
     copper plates
on a rolling press
&
a poet
       so sublime

     none-the-less
