Liquid Vincent Shores

Liquid Vincent Shores

There are depths so deep

none can surface

even while the sun shines happiness

it’s all a dream

left pooling

on liquid Vincent shores

 

longing to be lost

amidst the turbulent winds

tossing thought across

a starry night

he painted a smile on the world

despite drowning

on liquid Vincent shores

 

an absinthe of mind

forgetting the pain

in impasto layers

life one stroke at a time

on liquid Vincent shores

  1. Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night is among my favorite paintings of all time. I was doing some reading about van Gogh the other day and found that often he painted to keep himself from going crazy. He definitely has produced quite a body of work. I was struck as well by his “Self Portrait With Bandaged Ear.” You are right when you say he painted a smile on the world despite drowning on liquid Vincent shores……and we are fortunate that he did. But his life must have been very sad.

  2. so very cool….and some great lines…love the refrain/title as well as it is descriptive yet evocative as well….my fav lines…

    he painted a smile on the world

    and that says much of him, now doesnt it…

  3. he was suffering so much inwardly but i never could find the struggle in his paintings…he painted a smile on the world

    despite drowning

    on liquid Vincent shores…. so very, very true…

  4. I’m with Brian and Claudia, “he painted a smile on the world …” sums up so much about van Gogh as both a person and an artist. And I am in awe at your painting; I’m hopeless with paint and brushes.

  5. I have tried to pen van Gogh’s Starry Night in verse. It is difficult and mine pales to nothing in comparison. The repetition worked well to hold the poem and reader on a familiar level. Wonderful.
