Passion - reading Van Gogh (1. Passion)


1. Passion


A naked soul
follows the heat of Sun
to southern country
resides in middle of
naked field
strives to grow
life
with his
naked
brushstrokes

  1. I like the implication here-that the painter is like a farmer or gardener. Instead of seeds, she/he uses art to plant the seeds of life.
