Ugh Van Gogh



Van Gogh

are you aware

what you have put me through?

well, echostains

invited me to a poetry challenge

though i am not a poet.

but for the fun of it

here it is.

i see that you are obsessed

with your myriad faces.

don’t tell me you’re not

why paint a lot?

kidding aside,

i admire you man

we both lack self-confidence

but still we want to give happiness.

so i guess what you are trying to say

in your self-portraits is,

‘no sense in taking thy own life

for thy own life has sense’.

    Thanks for the reminder.

      thanks to Lynda for the challenge.
      yes he’s indeed beautiful and his works.
      he’s so kind too to predict that there would be a great ‘painter of the future’. imagine how that line inspires so many artists.

  3. HAHHA!!! I love your sense of humor. However, I do agree you are a great poet and should follow through with your passion for writing poetry. Best of success’ to you. Kindest, Ezzy

      hello Ezzy!
      how can i now say it’s hard?
      thanks for the encouragement
      i’ll keep on writing this way
      regardless if it’s called poetry
      or simply short lines entry.
      i’ll tell you a secret
      this is actually lazy in disguise
      too lazy to write long
      and think super strong
      thanks for checking by the way
      keep on inspiring along the way

    This is a very unflowery sincere heartfelt poem – I’ve just put it on my blog! Going to add you to my blogroll now – glad I found this blog:)

  5. That was an awesome videa, and a terrific poem to go along with it. You are definitely a poet, whether or not you admit it. Peace, Linda

  6. I agree with you…” ‘no sense in taking thy own life

    for thy own life has sense’.” Great post! Have you ever heard the song about him? It is titled “Starry Starry Night by Don McLean. You can watch and listen to it on youtube.

    I am so thankful that God puts people like you on the earth who enjoy giving happiness to others. I thank you and I thank Him.

      thank you!
      if this is what i get
      then there’s no regret
      in taking up the challenge
      of Van Gogh’s suspense.
      i’ll see Don McLean in a while
      to hear Starry Starry Night with a smile
