Night Painting


Poefusion Friday 5 offers string, vinegar, dilated, mural and kempt for the writer's muse. Others' responses can be found at the site.



**

on this Van Gogh night
a dilated moon on a string
lines a transient mural
across the bruise-purple sky

a gold shade of vinegar
in a shallow black bowl
lures diminutive flies
from the dark to their
death in a freeform design

poorly kempt firs pierce
cracks in the somber light
drop similar dark shapes
before the rising sun's glaze

I agree with paisley. That first stanza is very evocative.

Gorgeous imagery, lovely sound. That Van Gogh night, dilated moon, the bowl, firs, rising sun, stand out so clearly. Wonderful poem!

What an incredible mind you have. This paints a very surreal picture in my mind. I especially like the second stanza. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend.
