Revelation Of ' The Starry Night' - Poem by Alice Cuenca

a tormented soul against the darkness
unuttered sound of a roaring beast
feelings translate a colored vision
the sky slithers in rhythm of emotion

the stars rivaled the moonlight's intensity
gilt of light laments to the sky
an image seen through shadowy trees
in depthness, a nightmare with open eyes


the atmosphere below in idyllic serenity
sleeping, unaware of the uncertainty
of anguised rendered in golden reflection
painted the sky in lamentation

side by side, a duplicate nature struggles
unbending commitment to artistry
to a final price, death...

    This is a very well written and expressive poem, Kandice, and gives a fascinating intrepretation of what is perhaps Van Gogh's finest painting. Being a fan of Vincent myself, I once visited the little town in Holland where his father was pastor of the local church and played billards on the same table he is purported to have played on in a bar in Nunen in Southern Holland. I have admired his paintings for a very long time. Your poem does great justice to 'Starry Night' It is actually the third and final 'Starry Night' he painted. There are two earlier ones, one of which I chose to be the cover of my 2nd book of poetry. Thank you for the pleasure of reading your fine poem and your very accurate observations on his famous painting. Carl. (Report) Reply
