An Ode To Van Gogh

Van Gogh’s yellow dazzles
my dream
and suddenly I wake up to
a bright day
sunflowers singing
straight from his paintings
fill my heart with unknown joy
his starry nights
fill my darkness
I walk with dancing lights
I wake up from my dream
lying still in the midnight
burst into tears
of intense passion
for his lust for life
Van Gogh’s yellow dazzles
my dream…
