Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh – Artist

a seated solitary man
head low, bent shoulders
weighed down by his own cross
heavy on the whole person…
face sunk into strong yet gentle hands…
a sense of pausing near the edge,
vivid, alarming colours…
skilled emotional brushwork…

there was a safe haven among
“The Potato Eaters”
even among “The Round of Prisoners”
art of the mind swirled by
a perpetual conflict…
“Starry Night…”
movement of shining
light beyond light
where the waiting gate
of eternity gives
hope…
at last…

vincent…
beautiful soul
gradually
merging into
shadows of
the mind…

“At Eternity’s Gate”
(from the year 1890…)
when faltering steps
took you to
a waiting field…
to creation always
infused with
turbulent life…

closing words to you brother
“the sadness
will
last
for
ever…”

“White House At Night”
delicate
sensitive coming
to life
six weeks
before
you shot yourself…

many self portraits
haunted by the darkness
in your mind….

“Cypresses”
“Starry Night”

a sense of struggling reality…

“Wheatfield With Crows”
deepening darkness
intense inner screaming…
crows dark
like
harpies in a
forest
of
despair…

rest in light
beyond the “starry night”
now….
time
to
rest
at
last…..
