fraught-filled  days
worrying  my  life  away

twisting  into  futile  nights
shooting  at  the  stars

wishing  i  was  fearless

“Sleep”  Featuring Josh Turner

artwork ~   “The Starry Night”   Vincent van Gogh  {  public domain }
{ ink drawing which probably preceded the painting }


‘Van Gogh’s night sky is a field of roiling energy. Below the exploding stars, the village is a place of quiet order. Connecting earth and sky is the flamelike cypress, a tree traditionally associated with graveyards and mourning. But death was not ominous for van Gogh. “Looking at the stars always makes me dream,” he said, “Why, I ask myself, shouldn’t the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France? Just as we take the train to get to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to reach a star.”
The artist wrote of his experience to his brother Theo: “This morning I saw the country from my window a long time before sunrise, with nothing but the morning star, which looked very big.” This morning star, or Venus, may be the large white star just left of center in The Starry Night. The hamlet, on the other hand, is invented, and the church spire evokes van Gogh’s native land, the Netherlands.

“The Starry Night”  {oil painting}  Vincent van Gogh

‘The painting, like its daytime companion, The Olive Trees, is rooted in imagination and memory. Leaving behind the Impressionist doctrine of truth to nature in favor of restless feeling and intense color, as in this highly charged picture, van Gogh made his work a touchstone for all subsequent Expressionist painting.’

sun low on the English horizon
silhouetted in a tree
blackbird calling to his Love

here i am,  my Love
waiting patiently
here i am,  my Love
please,  come to me

i hold my breath
to better hear his song
blackbird calling to his Love

here i am,  my Love
and here i will be
here i am,  my Love
until you come to me

i close my eyes…
hear a soft beating of  wings
blackbird calling to her Love

here i am,  my  Beloved
and here i will stay
by your side,  my Beloved
until my very last day

not the light of the sun
nor the dark of the moon
.
not the flicker of the stars
nor the tail of a comet
.
not the tides of the sea
nor the petals of a flower
.
nothing in all the galaxies
can compare to our love
.
you are mine
i am yours
.
we are complete
