“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.” –Vincent Van Gogh
I painted Tuesday with stars hoping
Van Gogh would woo the iris
to rise from their winter melancholy.
or night without sun?
Van Gogh’s brush
on the cheeks of the moon.
The sky fell in starlight strokes
of Van Gogh.
Like a child chasing butterflies
I collected wishes on the tip
of my brush to paint joy
in my valley of sorrow.
