Van Gogh's Starry Night

Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”

gamboge moon and stars
dance haloed whirlwind marriage
in violet sky

lemon-greens and greys
calm sleeping childhood mem’rys
beneath white steeple

as black cypress looms
past swirling clouds like fleeting
requiem for love.

Vincent would be proud of your art Deborah - ' calm sleeping childhood memories beneath white steeple...' is a brilliant adaptation to his image - reminds how youth is the foundation of all things powerful - I really like Van Gogh's still lifes of boots, and you may like his painting, The Poet's Garden - J.A.B. %
