Starry Night

 
 

 

 

 

My Version of Starry Night

In your yellow light filled night
you captured moments
a twinkle, a sparkle, a glow
you noticed how blue blanketed the hills
beneath a crescent moon cradled in light
with quick, short anxiety filled strokes
you daubed them on canvas
those same stars wink at me in my night sky
but only you held their twinkling matter
in your gentle imagination
introducing them to your own swirling world.

 

 

I’m having a little Vincent obsession at the moment but must say it’s a fun obsession. I just had to have a go at painting Starry Night, in the end it became my version it’s too hard to paint like Vincent.  Linked to dversepoets.

  1. nice…i love your version of starry night..

    but only you held their twinkling matter
    in your gentle imagination
    introducing them to your own swirling world…. very cool di..love it… and love van gogh’s paintings..he was a genius

  2. There’s so much in Van Gogh’s work that amazes and speaks so clearly–yet in his time those pictures were voiceless–I think the world is now as blurred and disturbed as those thick, anxious brushstrokes you describe so well, and finds comfort in the ability of the artist to bring beauty meaning and order even to this.

  3. smiles…he was a ble to capture a bit of the magic of those stars…what we capture in a glimpse and place them on canvas…this is a great painting to play off of…

  4. your version of Starry night is truly beautiful, and enjoyed the verse very much, especially three concluding lines that will surely stay in my mind for long. thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. An amazing piece of art. I’ve seen it twice, once in Fort Worth, once in Paris. It affects me deeply with it’s energy and vision. I think your poem captures that magic as well. A binding and personal piece that elucidates why art enhances the human condition!
