I just sit upon a writing desk, and write. And then, I tell stories. Legends of long ago.
I think Vincent would have liked it that you wrote this.
Ninot Ma'am,In a nutshell all of Vincent's masterpieces, portraits and cypress trees in your wonderful poem. How's the going, your book and all?Hank
Dear Fireblossom,I hope to do justice. But his hues of yellow and deep blues are just to magnificent for words...Sir Hanks,It is in the hands of my dear publisher, Utusan. They will do editing, layout and so on...so it will be a while before it sees the light of day. I must keep busy with other things...if not I will drive them crazy!Glad you liked the poem.
I am not sure whether Vincent would be in awe of the poem as yours truly ;)
Aahhh, Ayoh Wang. I am just the scribe. Writing what my head and heart tells me to pen down
nice tribute to the master poet of colour
…ah, i am deeply refreshed by how this art moves in me and now as i read your words tonight is much more of a bonus to me… luscious as well… thanks for the poem!(:Brightest blessings.~Kelvin
Thank you Isabel...he is amazing!
All the best to you, Kelvin. You are too kind...
This is wonderful, and captures what I imagine his spirit was, so well.
Thank you, Jingle. For always being there for all of us.
Dear Sherry! That was exactly what I was trying to do!
I love how your words evoked so many of Vincent's paintings- superb!
Just read Kathe W again and add my name! Lovely.
I really like the way you told the artist's story in stanza form, significant piece by significant piece.http://www.kimnelsonwrites.com/2011/07/04/vincent-the-sublime/
Le soleil brille,Et la chaleurmontant de la terreBrûluresLove these beautiful French words - a poem all by themselves.
Wonderfully well crafted!
I love the way you used the white space. And I wholehearted agree with the comment you made to Fireblossom. Van Gogh's colors WERE too magnificent for words.
Wow! I am very impressed this is marvelous
aha, poets often share the same muse. I, too, referred to his other works to paint a picture. :-)
you take us on a very cool journey through the mind of the shattered genius...well spun
Well written and very interesting
This is good.Anna :o]
A lovely mix of the artist, his life and his art.
Beautiful poem ... I especially liked the use of the singular words between the stanzas ...
Share with me your thoughts - and friendship !
