Inspired by Vincent

I’m in pursuit of a starry sky

If not to vision such beauty

I may as well die

My spirit is free

I’m an owl of the night

Wings spread fiercely

Now taking flight

Dusk pounds my heart

Light winds keeps me steady

holding paint brush tight

now I am ready

Only me

Only I

And the stars

Gliding through air

Blinded by excitement

Whipped by cold

Encouraging me forward

Into the light of a new alba

Out of starlight


Into my next painting.

starry sky and you bring it into better focus. I like the kind of irregular rhythm to this and the near rhyme feel. I imagine that this is how old Vinnie felt. Nice. ~ Geez.

Our Chatroom is open 24/7 Feel free to use it for
keeping in touch We have poets around the world and it is fun
to have real-time conversations with those that are up
all night or on the other side of the world.

Once again you have gone deep into this infact
You hit the nail on the head, it was more of a ride on the mind of Vincent, my first title was passenger, but I didn't think it would work

Thank you...Teddy

Hi, Teddy,
Very energetic poem, and if I am interpreting correctly, you are painting profusely through the night, encouraged by all the nocturnal elements which bring you to the light of the "new Alba" and your next magnificent masterpiece. "Out of starlight and into my next painting." Love that line! (Do you paint? Seems like you do!)
Thank you!

What lovely thoughts, I do love painting, I use oil paints but I am, far from talented. I prefer the pen.
This is a ride on the mind of Vincent, I'm so glad you found it.

Thank you...Teddy
