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

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
