A Midsummer Day's Museum Tour


A Haiku Sequence


'Van Gogh at Work'...
I feel like wearing the face
of a sunflower

Rembrandt's 'Night Watch'
a line of Japanese tourists
clicks and turns

Rodin's 'Le Baiser'
this urge to hold
a stranger's hand

the Jesuits
hacked off his penis
'Semini Statue'

Woestyne's 'Last Supper'
the security guard eats
three chocolates

homecoming dream:
a white dove flies out of
'Wheat Field with Crows'


Notes:

1 Semini is viewed as an ancient fertility symbol.
2 It is commonly stated that 'Wheat Field with Crows' was van Gogh's last painting

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
