Artist's Description

“*The Pink Circus” is part of the Portfolio collection in my website “The Journey*”…
Acrylic on Canvas…original is for sale…
Remember when the Circus was magic? We were so young then.

“_*The Pink Circus” poem is at once a fantasy and a metaphor for life_*…..
On the surface, it’s a nostalgic memory of childhood days when everything seemed “in the pink”…..at least that’s how I remember it, and that’s why, after I did the painting, I wrote the verses…..
From the pink dresses we wore to the endless strawberry ice creams, life was a dream…….an endless pink circus
.
It’s also part of the “Journey” that we are all on…..the words can be used to interpret any situation from your own lives.
_The “Clowns” you deal with now are probably quite different, and St Paul in Corinthians told us long ago, to "put away childish things
".
Many dreams have fallen by the wayside along with old loves, but sometimes we need some of that old enchantment, to get us through the day.
The words can be also interpreted literally…..
Most of us were taken to the circus when we were young… and as children, we were entranced by the excitement of the big ring, the painted faces of the clowns and the pleasurable terror of the trapeze.
_In the end we grew up, but every so often we need just a little bit of the magic of the Pink Circus
.

Those were the days, when the Pink Circus came.
Bells ringing loud, Balloons with our names.
Rivers of Pink Juice, Mountains of Jam
Oh! where are the days, when the Pink Circus came
?
Those were the days when the Pink Circus came.
Clowns in a row, all painted to go.
Apples on Pink Sticks, Lakes of Pink Cream.
Oh! where are the days, when the Pink Circus came
?
The days of the Circus, have gone from our lives.
Pink shoes and Pink love, have withered and died.
We’ve pulled up Pink Covers and buried them here.
Pink memories remain to show they were there
