Edgar and Vincent

1 Comment

The melancholy of sweet depression

like Poe and Vincent Van Gogh

those who were fraught with despair

have created haute cuisines

of flesh, of reds, of spleen

they’ve picked up their brushes, their pen and ink

their palettes exploded, fit to repair

splayed open wide

their vision, their loneliness and

the haunting beauty that possessed their minds

their art, wild and wanton

masterpieces of expression

born out of tongues that spoke with hysteria

and sights of historical blessings

that spoke about The Starry Night

of Annabel and The Raven’s delight

that spoke of shimmer, shiver and fright

of howling, wailing wicked light!

Vincent Van Gogh and

Edgar Allan Poe.

(I wrote this poetry as a tribute to both of these amazing artist’s. The above painting I did is of Michael Wolgemut, Vincent Van Gogh’s mentor and teacher; I painted him because I love Vincent Van Gogh and his work and was instantly attracted to his eyes, “the eyes are the window to the soul” as they say)

I am an artist who loves to cook, eat and explore all things related to food and art. I have created this blog on food and my foodie explorations, recipe's and ramblings as a way to link my love of the palate with the palette! Yumfood YumArt!!

    I wanted to share this post I did from a blog I joined called “20 lines a day…an exercise in discipline” it was created by Melissa Hassard a wonderful writer and blogger who wanted to challenge poets to write 20 lines a day. It is a great blog for poetry and photography. I have enjoyed the callaborative community of artist’s, and the challenge.
